mesh networks and #hamradio

by Jim Morgan

I have been doing some pondering on the thoughts many have had about what we’d do if the internet was turned off here like it was in Egypt and Libya. I figure it already exists in #hamradio so I will not expending vast amounts of effort in recreating the wheel. I will attempt to find somethings that may make it more fun for the geeks even though they may not even understand what we are doing or even how we do it. APRS is the answer to all those nagging questions about ad hoc open networks.
