This year's AT1HQ operation is dedicated to the memory of Ved VU2VP, eminent scientist and long time Vice President of ARSI who became a Silent Key on 6th July. Like previous years, AT1HQ was once again on the air as the ARSI multiplier in the IARU Contest. Back in 2016, we had tried out a Wide Area Network (WAN) operation using VPN connecting stations in Mumbai, Bangalore and Mangalore. This year, due to a last minute development, the Mumbai team couldn't participate and therefore AT1HQ comprised ops at stations in Bangalore and Mangalore only. We once again seamlessly cnnected all stations over the internet and N1MMLogger+ worked great with the Master server on the Microsoft Azure cloud. All the networked stations could see all the QSOs made by the other AT1HQ stations immediately. We were also on the the Online Contest Scoreboard at and this meant minute-by-minute progress was available for viewing online. Contesting has truly become an online spectator sport! Conditions were terrible all weekend and a solar flare only added to the misery. Scores were way down from last year as can be seen from the summary. Thanks to ARSI for the opportunity to be a Multiplier and thank you to all those hams who stepped forward to make this operation possible. Links to the setup guides for Server side and Client side for multi-op WAN VPN networked operations have been shared on the N1MM+ Yahoogroups mailing list for use by other HQ stations who may be interested. The full package is now on the N1MM website under Additional Support Files at The latest updated files will be availble here when changes are made. Note that a cloud based server is not really needed to run this network like we did. One of the stations which has the Master computer can run Softether VPN Server on the same machine and the other stations on the network can connect to it using the Client setup guide.
