HamWAN's goal this summer was to deploy as many sites as possible. Thanks
to the help of a few dedicated volunteers, three sites are now operational
and ready to route your packets. The next step is for you to get connected!
I have put a lot of time into developing coverage maps to help
you determine if your home or repeater site is within the current
coverage area. Nigel has developed a database of current connections to
HamWAN and signal surveys. This data has all been integrated into a map
on the home page, please check it out:
You can click each node to see its link status. Blue links are currently
online. Gray links are surveys completed with a portable HamWAN client
setup (grid antenna, tripod, modem, and laptop). The current distance
record for this setup is 101 miles (163 km). Way to go Bart--that's some
serious 5.9 GHz DX!
If it looks like you are in the coverage area (or not!), please try
to connect. We would like to collect as many data points possible to verify
signal strength and link quality. A network is only as useful as its
participants make it.
