“OCERI receives a grant from the Three Rivers Foundation to upgrade to digital VHF/UHF radios at the Florence Fire Station, the Florence Justice Center, Dunes City Hall and Mapleton. The radios will keep the three cities connected in the event of a disaster. The grant also allowed the purchase of digital camera microphones to permit the taking and sending by radio of digital photographs of incidents in the West Lane County area.” Bob Pine

What is Flonet?

Julie McGrew AC0WN, President of COCARC, in addition to spearheading other technical advances in Amateur Radio for the Florence Area is now in the early stages of the development of a Ham Radio based Intranet WiFi communications system called a Mesh Network. The system will use off the shelf wifi routers and radios that are modified to use the amateur radio spectrum. Typically for a cost of less then 50 dollars any amateur, Tech and above, can join the network. Flonet will be based on firmware provided by AREDN (Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network) Julie can be contacted for further information. Look for a new page (soon) on this site outlining developments in Flonet.
