Matanuska Amateur Radio Association +++ MARA, Inc. is a 501(c)3 IRS Tax Exempt Charitable Organization +++ ARRL Organization Affiliate AMATEUR RADIO CLUB AND Amateur Radio Emergency Service – Alaska Section (MATANUSKA Borough)
OK coming up on Saturday, April 29th at 1800 will be a presentation on HamWAN at WASI Class Room. The club is looking into possibly setting up a network around the valley to start with, to give us an internal internet. This is a modern, multi-megabit, IP-based, digital network for amateur radio use. It can be tied into the regular internet if available but continue to work if it is lost. There are several additional features it could provide to work with outside agencies or activities
Currently Puget Sound has quite a network established. The MARA working group will have equipment on hand and discuss the pros and cons of the system. Contact Chris/KL5BF for any additional info on the presentation.
