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
($41-$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 (arednmesh.org) 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.
