Arizona Mesh Organization - Home Page.


The Arizona Mesh Organization was established in September of 2019 and by December of that same year it had became incorporated and was a 501 (c) (3) non-profit group. Our history goes back to around 2016, when Steve Estes KB7KWK and Larry Fort AB7C started talking about Broadband Hamnet (BBHN). They started with a few Linksys routers and some waterproof boxes and established a connection at about 3.8 miles. Then John Groseclose WX4LTG who lives in Scottsdale and was about 15.8 miles away was able to connect to Steve. Not long after this they heard about the group in Austin Texas and Ubiquiti WIFI equipment and Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network (AREDN). That brings us up to 2020 and the group now has around eighty-five nodes with 200 links, and around 45 Club members and growing.

Former FEMA Administrator Advocates Using Mesh Networks for Disasters

This is partly why we should all be getting our FEMA certs. It will certainly help in the future: Former FEMA Administrator Advocates Using Mesh Networks for Disasters

Former Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) Administrator Craig Fugate, KK4INZ, encouraged the use of mesh networking to help empower volunteers during natural disasters, such as hurricanes and wildfires. During a keynote at the International Wireless Communications Expo's (IWCE) Virtual Event, Fugate noted "By building these types of networks, you can put people back into communication and put people to work where they're needed." He encouraged public safety agencies to work with local amateur radio groups and commercial providers to create solutions that can build these mesh networks when the main network goes down. [See the August 2020 issue of the ARES Letter for a story on how mesh networking is gaining traction in Ohio - Ed.] .-- FEMA Disaster Emergency Communications News Clippings and Topics of Interest Vol. 9 Issue 16, August 16-31, 2020.


Signup For the FEMA NIMS Incident Command System Cert Classes

For those of you that are interested in participating in the various public service events or in emergency situations, most groups like the Maricopa Emergency Communications Group & the Red Cross require you to have certain FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) certifications. Everyone who is interested in taking these classes will need to first establish their own FEMASID number, which you can get from the link below:

The FEMA Certifications Classes Are: These certifications are all part of the (NIMS) National Incident Management System and the courses are part of the (ICS) Incident Command System and can be easily obtained by taking on-line classes which take approximately one hour each to complete. In addition to these classes, there are a number of other classes and programs covering a wide area of subjects that some of you may find useful. Although we as a club are not requiring anyone to take any of these classes or acquire any of the certifications. The officers and board of directors would like to strongly encourage you to do so.
