About Us

The Sac-AREDN Group was formed in early 2018 by Tom Preston KQ6EO.  Its original members were a special interest group of the Sacramento Amateur Radio Club but has expanded to include members from many other area clubs.

The purpose of the group is to build an AREDN Mesh infrastructure encompassing the lower Sacramento Valley and surronding areas.  The mesh will support emergency situations, public events, and of course amateur radio uses and experimentation.

The initial build is a backbone set of sites to support the Sacramento Metro area and westward to the Coastal Range.  Also to connect to the Bay area and the San Joaquin Valley.  We will then move inward to expand the connectivity options.
