In order to be considered a HamWAN compatible network, there are several criteria that the network must follow.
Please note, this certification process, does not need to be followed by a client node (users) trying to connect to an existing certified hamwan network.
- 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:
- Use NV2 TDMA mode (currently only available on Mikrotik hardware)
- Use the 10 MHz or 5 MHz in 10 MHz channels frequency plan with 120 degree sectors
- 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 184.108.40.206/8 addresses from AMPR
- Your network must be open for use by all hams. The only exclusion permitted is after a documented violation of Part 97.
- Have your network reviewed by the HamWAN organization to confirm that these criteria have been met. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org when you are ready to certify your network.
