Broadband-Hamnet Software Wins International Awards

The developers of Broadband-Hamnet™ software (formerly HSMM-MESH) are expected to be in Reno, Nevada, this month to accept two awards for their technology from the International Association of Emergency Managers. According to Newsline, the software is being honored with the Technology and Innovation Award from both the association's USA Council and the full international body.

Mesh networking was recently featured in an article in Government Technology magazine, but that author reviewed only a commercial version that does not allow connection to the Internet, as is possible with Broadband-Hamnet. 

For a more complete look at the use of Mesh network technology in amateur radio emergency communications, see W2TTT's article in the upcoming October issue of CQ.
