|COMMUNITY MEDIA SHEFFIELD & LONDON
The UK community radio movement arose out of a series of standing conferences in the early 1980s leading to the founding in 1983 of the Community Radio Association. The CRA began life as a broad coalition of campaigners and academics, unlicensed stations, radio production workshops and community activists. Its aim was, and remains, to establish a third sector of UK radio which will be locally owned and controlled and not run for private commercial gain. The CRA (now the CMA) is a membership organisation providing information, advice, training and consultancy. It represents the interests of Community Media to policy makers and other important bodies and holds regular conferences and events.
Following a resolution passed at the 1997 Community Media Conference, it has been decided that the name of the organisation should be changed to the Community Media Association (CMA). The new name reflects our increasing involvement in other forms of Community Media, for example community television and new media (including the internet). The CMA will continue to be part of these new forms of community broadcasting and will evolve appropriately in order to continue to best represent our member organisations.

|ASTRA Broadband Interactive System
Offering two-way broadband connectivity via satellite. The ASTRA Broadband Interactive System (BBI) is an open and neutral technology platform, offering users receive and transmit capabilities from the ASTRA Satellite System. Users will be able to receive data, video and audio at speeds of up to 38 Mbit/s. And the return channel from the users, sent via a Satellite Interactive Terminal (SIT) will transmit at speeds of up to 2 Mbit/s. BBI is optimized for asymmetric two-way communications (for example, for broadcasting or multicasting with interactive capabilities) and is based upon IP protocols, supporting all common standard Internet applications.

No Telephone Line
With this premium service, you have a permanent 2-way circuit that will save many hours delay in logging-on, downloading large files or surfing the net and eliminate all telephone costs. E-mails and data are forwarded automatically on receipt from the hub straight to your server or PC.
The hub is connected by a high speed fibre optic link to the internet backbone, data is broadcast by the hub 4MB/s (upgradeable) in a DVB multiplex to each user terminal, each of which has a direct return link to the hub at 16KB/s (soon to be upgraded to 32KB/s) burst mode.

The ITU, headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland is an international organization within the United Nations System where governments and the private sector coordinate global telecom networks and services.
Broadband ushers in convergence - at last. Broadband networks can be used for communication of all kinds (voice, data, video, etc.). In a narrowband world, several distinct industries focus on specific kinds of communication. The telecommunications industry focuses on voice, the TV industry (cable and broadcast) focuses on video, and the IT industry focuses on data. These industries have traditionally been regulated distinctly due to their varying levels of monopolisation, national interest, and universal service responsibilities. Such distinct regulation may not 'fit' the converged world of broadband.
|Guy Kewney's Mobile Campaign
The aim of this site is to make wireless data easier. And to do that, we, the users of mobile devices, have to shift a lot of rubble out of the way. We can do it, if we joint together; and we need more industry support to do this.
I need your help. I have a vision of a world where you can have full-speed broadband access to any data you want, without having to find an office. Like, the garden, the nearest coffee shop, the bedroom, the nearest pub, the bar in the hotel (not just the business centre) or even a street bench. Wireless can make this happen.
But it won't just happen by itself; it needs wireless users to put pressure on people who oppose the idea.
There are institutions which oppose wireless data. There are standards which make it impossible. And there are Government bodies who move only reluctantly and slowly, unless we users learn to speak out urgently, and make ourselves heard.

|A High Speed Digital Backbone Radio Link
This page outlines my experimental aims towards building a low cost, high speed digital radio point to point link. Such links are intended as a backbone for a future high speed data network, and will run at speeds above 1 Mbps. Intended frequency of operation is in the amateur 10 GHz and/or 24 GHz bands.
Why a high speed data network? I see several reasons why a high speed data network can be of benefit to the amateur community. Besides the obvious reasons of experimentation and relieving the congestion on the current packet radio system, I have outlined my thoughts on the matter in my essay: Amateur Radio - A Future Vision.

|Spread Spectrum Scene
Wireless Local Area Networks have certainly advanced over the last seven to 10 years, haven't they? Then there's all this controversy over which standard to use -- Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum, under FCC 802-11 or Frequency Hopping under FCC's new rulemaking issued August 31, 2000! Perhaps most significant are all the recent concerns about WLAN security.
This page is intended to help guide you from the basic theory of WLANs, to the design of WLANs, through the selection of vendor hardware and system architecture. We provide links to recent news stories on WLANs, reference books available to purchase, and a wealth of free information on the Web!
