I've worked with John Acton and others over the last few years in
discussions about getting Island County hooked up and different people have
traded coverage maps/etc for the EOCs, hospitals, and other facilities.
Most of those I still have on file and can forward to you.  One of the
stronger possibilities since last year is there are spots in Coupeville that
have LOS to Lookout in Mt Vernon/Bellingham.  Oak Harbor could be covered by
a "bounce" off of sector from Coupeville, and from there it is a matter of
filling in the gaps.  The Blyn installation going up should also open up
some possibilities that we didn't have before last weekend <g>.


Let me know your current list of desired locations to cover and I'll see how
many of them I already have on file and add the others.   Now that Blyn's
online I can update those maps as well.

I hope it is ok to post this request to this forum.  I am the President of
the Island County ARC on Whidbey and the Island County ARES/RACES EC/RO.  We
are looking at creating a digital network on the Island for EMCOMM using
packet and Winlink both VHF/UHF and HF.  We have looked at HamWan for the
island before but our EOC's do not have line of site.  The island has lots
of trees and topography that makes line of site anything difficult.  We do
have some hams that live near the water that might have HamWan access,
especially when Blyn comes online.  Most of these hams are recently new and
don't know much about HamWan.  I was wondering if there was someone who
could do a Zoom presentation introducing HamWan to our club on July 25th.
The Zoom would start shortly after the meeting is called to order at 9:30am.
