System Overview

BeachNet is a linked network of open Amateur radio repeaters covering nearly 9000 square miles in southwest Washington State. A transmission over any of our repeaters is heard on all stations in the system, blanketing the southern coastal counties, an impossible task from any one site. BeachNet works closely with local Emergency Management Agencies to provide disaster communication support in the public interest. For general system information click the menu buttons on the left. For a detailed discussion of a specific repeater click on its frequency at the top or bottom of any page, or its location on the Coverage Map. Most important of all, key up and use our system. Get to know the other users and where our system works (and doesn't work). The best way to be prepared for an emergency is to be familiar with the people and infrastructure that comprise BeachNet.
