"Hey boss, I tried to call Jimmy on the radio but he didn't respond. I called him on his cell phone and he said he didn't get the radio call. Can you fix our radios to help us talk when we need to?"
How can the boss help out Jimmy, Frank and the rest of the radio users communicate when necessary? The solution is as simple as RoIP (Radio over IP). "Frank, I'll see what I can do to help you and Jimmy communicate. Do you know anything about this RoIP communication deal?"
What is RoIP? In our past blog, Radio over IP - What is it?, we defined Radio over Internet Protocol (RoIP) as a two-way communication method which involves trans-reception of radio communication signals over internet protocol (IP).
ARRL President Kay Craigie, N3KN, expects to see the list of cosponsors for the US House version of the Amateur Radio Parity Act of 2015 -- H.R. 1301 -- top 100 soon after Congress reconvenes following its August recess. As of August 27, the measure had attracted 94 cosponsors. A US Senate version of the bill -- S. 1685 -- also has been introduced.

Summertime ARRL conventions have also been affording more members a chance to make their voices heard.
In a critical situation communication is key. This is especially true in a hospital where lives are on the line. In one Ohio hospital system they face a greater challenge. How can several of the hospital buildings, spread out over a distance, communicate like they are one?
The Requirement: Create a seamless communication network so the hospitals can communicate together using the existing LTR communication system over four three channel sites.
The Solution: Deploy BridgeCom Systems TL-NET multi-site networking communication system. The hospitals have four LTR sites with three channels each. The main site will use a TL-NET Gateway, connected to three TL-NET Controllers. Then the controllers will be connected to their existing repeaters, and finally to the internet. The three other sites will use a TL-NET MV-2 and TL-NET MV-1 connected to three BridgeCom BCR Repeaters. What do all the pieces do and how do
