Our deployment of HamWAN, a multi-megabit internet connected network over Ham frequencies, is now live in Tampa.
With a proper CPE setup you can expect to get 10-20 MBit/s TCP throughput to your network. We support both IPv4 and IPv6 address space. Anyone who’s licensed (Tech or higher) can get on 5.9 GHz with equipment for under $200-250 dollars. This is perfect for linking repeaters and other critical points to the internet for redundant radio linking and high speed redundant IP data. Leave your TNC at home and experience what packet radio should have been.
Below is a coverage map showing a 30 ft client radio elevation (and clear line of sight) to our site in Tampa. This is an estimate for minimum signal (-75 dBm), as such if you’re marginal it may not work as well, even though the radios will work down to -90 dBm.
Attached is a coverage map you can overlay into Google earth and explore.
To get online please subscribe to our FSG mailing list and we can get you authorized and your client radio configured for our access points. We have a few test radios available if you want to test a site out before committing to it.
