    HamWAN is a 5 GHz high-speed data system... Long Distance Internet (or Intranet) without wires, on ham radio. HamWAN is on the air in Seattle, Memphis, and versions in Europe, and the system in Tampa that we'll see in this show. Like Broadband Hamnet, HamWAN is a high-speed data system. Unline Hamnet, HamWAN's infrastructure revolves around a few high sites, kind of like a repeater system. The similarity to repeaters, though, ends there, and you'll see why.

    Our tour guides are Bryan Fields W9CR and Ryan Owens KJ4SHL, with the Florida Simulcast Group.

    There are lots of videos about HamWAN and similar systems on YouTube. Here are links to the HamRadioNow talks from the DCC that cover that territory:

    Speaking out of lack of knowledge, and given that commercial communications is illegal, please tell us how this is a legal use of ham radio.

    I am interested in a more informed and direct answer. Bryan obviously interprets Part 97 in a certain way. How do we know that is an accurate, legal interpretation?

    Are you suggesting that I pursue a grey zone based on Bryan's opinion? Alone?

    Why do you continue on with this type of activity? Why would you ask this question, is it to get more views on youtube so YOU make more money?

    No. I was just asking if you heard what he said.
