Puget Sound Data Ring Bart Kus AE7SJ - [email protected] HamWAN.org Logical view of network Uplink Path Ring Node Distribution Node (3-sector) Why? Why do you use FM repeaters when you have a cell phone with you? They connect you to a different community

In a lower pressure way Do not require contracts or corporations Its interesting to play with their features Theyre available when other services fail Those who build them love the challenge Why? Life has advanced into the digital domain Amateur Radio should be leading technology, not lagging! Remember the early days? Do I really need to convey the value of all the IP-based software out there? Telephony Text messaging File sharing and everything else!

Why? Amateurs are in a uniquely good position to be successful at pulling this off! Leverage existing repeater sites Existing club infrastructure to rally for the cause Some existing financial systems to fund it Access to non-ISM frequencies Existing expertise in running radio systems A pool of tech-savvy early adopters / beta testers Why? Heres the future of radio communications, and amateurs can be on the other end of that device

How? 5GHz band Plenty of spectrum Easy to achieve spatial diversity Low atmospheric attenuation Cheap and available hardware The Puget Sound has a unique geometry By using a ring design, coverage comes from all angles obstacles less of a problem How?
