HamWAN at Beacon Hill
Thank you for joining us Saturday, October 14th, for our monthly ACS meeting and training. We have posted documents referenced at this meeting on the ACS website and have linked these individually below – meeting agenda
We had a great guest speaker, Kenny Richards, who provided a very informative presentation about HamWAN – what it does, how it works, and how it benefits us individually as amateur radio operators, and what if offers as a backup network to support response and recovery during emergencies and disasters.
Seattle OEM and ACS are strong supporters of HamWAN, as it brings us high bandwidth data communications throughout the Puget Sound region totally independent of any other existing internet/data communications network. Learn how you can tap into this incredible resource, and like any other ham radio pursuit, there are no subscription or recurring fees to do so.

HamWAN is supported by contributions from the ham radio community. What you say? Free internet? Sending messages in an emergency just by connecting to a wifi hotspot (when all commercial internet services and cellular are not working)?
There was a brief business meeting and training regarding deployment.
