This is a great tidbit from how HamWAN Seattle has helped in identifying a new
fire and getting a response.  This all goes away once we lose 3.4 GHz
(3300-3500 MHz.)

Hello All,

I wanted to share a quick note about how some HamWAN users who were viewing
the camera feeds this morning and spotted a small fire that had started. They
reported it to the DNR, who thanked them for the first report they’d gotten on
the fire, and they’ve sent a team to try and keep it small and under control.
It’s estimated currently at around 50 acres, south-east of Enumclaw along
highway 410.


Thank you to the folks who saw it this morning, helped the authorities with
the report, as well as all the team involved in the install & maintenance of
the network so we can have these awesome capabilities like multiple high
resolution cameras available at several of our sites.

I hope everyone is staying safe with the current fires and smokey conditions
around the northwest!
