What is a HAMCOW?
The HAMCOW was developed as a mobile communications center that can
be used for all sorts of radio events from ECOMMs, Road Races, Amateur
Radio contests, Field Day, Public Safety, and Public Service events.  It has
been designed to sustain operations for days at a time and has been
proving its worth on each and every trip.

There is still work to be done, and the HAMCOW will continue to evolve over time. 
Anything we identify that will increase our capabilities, speed and simplify
 deployment, will be incorporated.  There will be a focus on redundancy and
contingencies that will help keep us operational if "the big one" ever hits.

Keep an eye on the "What's Next" page for an-up-to date progress
report on what we will be doing next.  The "Past HAMCOW Events" page is
a collection of all our previous road trips.
