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

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
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!
