Announcing the launch of the Wide Area Network Repeater System...The overview found at http://www.wanrepeater.com/explains an amateur radio linking system which has been deployed in the central region of Pennsylvania which has near seamless north-south coverage from the New York State line into northern Maryland. It is the intention of the development team that this link system remain fluid in its application; which can and will change in purpose, as the need arises. The official name of the link system is "The Wide Area Network Repeater System" or WAN-RS. In times of disaster, it will serve many purposes for agencies like FEMA, PEMA, ARES and RACES/ACS, but from a neutral standpoint.
