This day in 2015, HamWAN deployed cell site equipment to their east Memphis cell site. Since then, we’ve added a 720p IP camera, another point-to-point link, network connectivity for a D-Star repeater, and a server has come and gone (due to climate control and power issues, it wasn’t the best site for a server). We continue to offer thanks to Tri-State Repeater Association for taking the equipment and hosting it for us at one of their existing sites.
As we continue to expand the network, this location will serve as a critical point of presence for our network. Today we have a router inside that only has one last port free (and it’s SFP!), and we don’t have monitoring of the UPS that’s providing power conditioning and emergency power for our equipment. We continue to have more work to do to improve the quality of HamWAN, but we’re excited by the consistent coverage of this site and look forward to it serving amateurs on HamWAN.
