Need a little help as I return to my home and family in Sicily. How does one apply for an Italian amateur radio license? I am an American Extra Class licensee.

Measuring network throughput

http://www.iw5edi.com/technical-articles/wi-fi-measuring-network-throughput

Part of a discussion at local har radio club, that may be of general interest

While setting up ham radio Wi-Fi links, tipically we define the total quality of links by simply measuring bandwidth or network throughput.

The common typical method consist in measuring network throughput by copying a large file from a PC to another PC located at the other part of the network link, and by measuring in seconds the time taken for the file to be transferred.

Well, this can give you a rought idea, but it is certainly far from the real throughput rate ....  Will try to explain how to get easily a real figure of throughput by using iPerf an open source command line application.

Next year's Dayton Hamfest will be at a much larger facility and extremely more functional and modern. One will have to drive a small distance to get there if planning to stay in the Dayton area; but it will take 15 minutes at most to get to the huge facility. Goodbye to the old and rather dirty site. It was about time to find a new home for the world's largest and best Hamfest. See you there !!! W4JDY
