Middle Georgia Data Network (MGDN)

The MGDN is an amateur radio based data (text traffic, email, files) network, it is not an amateur radio club.
However, several clubs support and members participate in the network.

MGDN Objectives:
Establish and maintain an Amateur Radio based data (text traffic) network in Middle Georgia, supporting two main goals:

1) provide text message traffic between hospitals, shelters, EOC, and Deploy Teams such as CERT and SAR;
2) provide text message traffic between middle GA WX observers and the Peachtree City NWS.
3) provide VoIP phone network, email, file exchange, live video, live text chat, Winlink, via high speed AREDN MESH network.

Mid Georgia Data Network primary frequency is 145.030 MHz; running PACKET, DRATS, VARA FM, HF Gateways, and more.
At State level, we are also establishing an AREDN MESH network, look for it on "GA-AREDN-USERS@groups.io".

MGDN simply provides a place to coordinate network operations and to show current network status and mapping. MGDN does not operate any voice repeaters, only packet digipeaters and mail drops, D-RATS, and FM VARA stations; all on the primary frequency 145.030 MHz. This network operates via radio only, but has ports to internet at some locations. We operate primarily as if internet and cellular service is not available. Some stations on the VHF network provide gateway access to HF data networks.

Remember:... "when all else fails ... Amateur Radio Works". Amateur Radio will provide critical communications.
