AI and Amateur Radio

After months of research I found a fellow ham project making Google Assistant available over ham radio – William got the idea for this project after first playing with the Internet Radio Linking Project IRLP, a system which uses VoIP technologies to link radio networks over the internet.

WX Make screen shot of it then tell those at base camp the forecast

I am trying to figure out how to use a RF Modem that has bluetooth so I can use Ham to give life into cell phone dead areas when we go camping. I think the main hurdle is a app / software that will send the proper data to the modem. Usually we would make a trip out everyday to check the WX. Make screen shot of it then tell those at base camp the forecast. I like NOAA radio but sometimes listening for that long to get the forecast and write it down is a pain!! Usually I would make a note pad of it in my phone and update it every night as I listened to NOAA. But its time consuming! Takes to much of my air time talking on HF from me! 

Google Assistant Available via Ham Radio

William Franzin VE4VR decided it would be particularly cool to make Google Assistant available over ham radio – and that’s exactly what he did

William got the idea for this project after first playing with the Internet Radio Linking Project, a system which uses VoIP technologies to link radio networks over the internet. Already having an IRLP node, it seemed only natural to make it into a gateway to the wider internet through integration with Google Assistant.
