HamWAN's first goal is to provide a set of standards for implementing high performance microwave networks. Our second goal is to create a reference implementation of this network in the Puget Sound region.

To call your network a HamWAN, you must meet the following certification criteria:

  1. A ham must be able to use the Client Node Configuration instructions to connect to your network. You can use the Sector Configuration instructions to accomplish this. Here is a summary:
  2. Your network must be routable on the Internet. It is important that HamWAN networks are interconnected, and to do this we use the Internet.
    • A convenient/cheap way to accomplish this is by using addresses from AMPR
  3. Your network must be open for use by all hams. The only exclusion permitted is after a documented violation of Part 97.

  4. Have your network reviewed by the HamWAN organization to confirm that these criteria have been met. Please email psdr@hamwan.org when you are ready to certify your network.

Non-HamWAN Networks

Interconnected/routable with HamWAN

These networks have been designed in a way that allows communication with HamWAN, but they use different RF standards.
