Ventura County Digital Mesh Node Configuration Guidelines

  • Channels:
    • 2.4 GHZ: -2 unless otherwise noted
    • 5.8 GHZ: 177 unless otherwise noted
  • Bandwidths:
    • 2.4 GHZ: 10 MHz
    • 5.8 GHZ: 20 MHz unless otherwise noted

Best Operating Practices:

  • If you set up a service on your node, make sure the name of that service begins with your callsign, to make it unique on the network.
  • If you take that service off the air, stop advertising it.
  • Point your node at the nearest backbone access node if you have good connectivity to it.
  • Set distance setting to slightly beyond the farthest node your node can communicate with reliably.
  • Don’t enable Internet access except temporarily for specific purposes.
