AREDN has come to Maine!

We have started a Mesh network in Maine. You will find a few nodes that have been listed on the map:

NG1P-4 a 5.8Ghz Rocket M5 and 13dB omni on Oak Hill in Brunswick Maine at the top of a 250 foot tower at K1MNW's QTH. (Thank you Bill!)
NG1P-1 is at my house at 65 feet using a Nanostation M5 (will be replacing with a Rocket and 19 dB 120 deg sector) 
NG1P-8 is at my house at 65 feet is a Rocket M2 on 2.4Ghz with a 9dB omni.

So far for services I have Meshchat running, BPQ32 packet node access, TeamTalk5 server running for voice and video.


This is just a good start but look forward to others joining and expanding the coverage and providing emergency communication. 
Here are a few coverage maps that I have shared:

Point to Point to and from Oak Hill to my house and some future nodes:

Future possible mesh sites. Is is a dream map and will require lots of approval. I will say that all the sites listed are repeater sites and most are DMR. Done right we could cover most of the whole state:

Checking in here in Maine!

I've been working with NG1P and K1MNW and have the third site up in Maine!  I also have a couple of co-workers that are interested, and may get their ham radio licenses so they can play AREDN with us.
