Spokane's Amateur Radio Wireless Network - HamNet

The goal of my HamNet Project is to develop, implement and install an 802.11a/n "MAN" (Metropolitan Area Network) system for Amateur Radio operators in the Spokane area. The intention of this link system is to replace or enhance low speed digital services that are already in place using traditional frequencies on VHF and UHF. Use of these systems together should be able to link the new technology and legacy systems together, and enhance the user experience that is already available in the field today.
