    Meshtastic device firmware (by meshtastic)

    Is anyone currently playing with, or is interested in creating a wireless network in the area to facilitate communication in the event of a disaster? There are these cheap, low power devices (about $20 or less) that can be programmed to communicate with others over very long distances, sending small messages, akin to SMS text message size. I was able to connect to people up to 23 miles away at my last house with this technology (via a Helium miner). The two most popular programs are Disaster.radio (https://disaster.radio/) and Meshtastic (https://meshtastic.org/). You basically put the device in an area where it has decent line-of-sight to someone else's device, and can chat to others via an Android/iPhone app that connects to the radio via bluetooth. This could be useful in general outdoor situations as well, where there is no cell phone service.
