Please do not blindly buy a 2.4 GHz device and then contact us
about connecting to our high speed multi-media network.

Please contact us before purchasing equipment.

The Miami Valley Mesh Alliance is an active group of Amateur Radio operators
building and operating a high speed multimedia network of affordable
($40-$100) outdoor rated commercial quality 802.11n Wi-Fi devices.
Any data that can be transported by IP can be utilized on this network.

Typical speeds are 10 to 65 Mbps.

The Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network ( maintains the
firmware that is flashed into certain indoor and commercial outdoor Wi-Fi Routers.
This AREDN firmware permits using Ham Radio frequencies adjacent to the standard 802.11n channels.

This AREDN firmware supports automatic adaptive mesh-style (adhoc) networking.
Mesh-style networking is capable of working within a similar
distanced and similar profiled network of nodes. Our local group has
dissimilar profiled nodes and we have rolling terrain and tall trees which
renders a pure mesh-style-technology impractical. Much of our network is
utilizing point-to-point links rather than the often assumed pure-mesh
network of putting every node on the same frequency and assuming that the
AREDN firmware will automagically figure it out.
