​AREDN Offline Map Submit Tool Updated

 

Darryl K5DLQ developed a command line tool that allows operators to submit nodes to the AREDN map without requiring the node itself to have internet access (direct or via Mesh Gateway).
It has been updated so that OMS.exe version 0.9 updated to point to arednmesh.org
This application runs on Windows.

To use it:

  1. Downloads the AREDN Offline Map Submit (OMS) tool from here:  http://bit.ly/arednomstool
  2. Extract the contents of the zip file to a folder on your PC (no installation required)
