Oregon HamWAN Updates

Herb Weiner

For those who haven't heard, we've received an $88,000 grant to deploy HamWAN in Portland, Oregon, and down to Salem, Oregon and to connect to the Puget Sound Data Ring (https://hamwan.org).

Progress has been slower than we had hoped, but we are still working on this. We could use some assistance in the following areas:

  • If you have Mikrotik networking experience, we could use your assistance with some IT work.
  • If you have contacts who own or manage towers, we are still looking for potential HamWAN sector sites.

Also, for those who have not heard, the Larch Mountain HamWAN site has been deactivated. This increases the priority to get our Oregon HamWAN sites operational.
