Middle Georgia Data Network

Welcome to the Middle Georgia Data Network, MGDN, website.


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 participate in the networks. And the network is discussed at club meetings.

MGDN simply provides a place to coordinate network operations and advancement; and to show current network status and mapping. MGDN does not operate any repeaters, only packet nodes 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.

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.

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