Miami Dade EOC - June 12 - 6:30 PM

Software Defined Radio


We’ll be meeting at the Miami Dade Emergency Operatons Center (EOC) in the Communications Division conference room.

Ray Vaughan will be doing a live demo of our remote spectrum monitoring. Based on a Raspberry Pi and an SDR (Software Defined Radio). It allows me to see a spectrum display from miles away, over our IP network, making locating interference much easier. We can also talk about the weaknesses in your external telecom systems and how to harden them.

Ray Vaughan is the Telecommunication Technician for Miami Dade Fire Rescue. He holds a Masters in Telecommunication Management from Barry University. He has been involved in telecommunications since 1972. He was the station engineer at WVUM, 90.5 and then became General Manager, and then later a tech manager for Dynamic Cablevision and the telecom manager for The Box Music Network. He is now responsible for the Miami Dade Fire Rescue UHF radio system. He is a longtime member of SBE.
