How to Get Involved

Objective - Why Mesh Anchorage?

goTenna is partnering with local Mesh enthusiasts to bring off-grid connectivity to their communities. Mesh networks, like any neighborhood community, become stronger as more people join them. As local users with real on-the-ground experience, goTenna Mesh ambassadors are dedicated to augmenting the central communication infrastructure across America with a reliable, bottom-up network.

Creating a community powered network that works with any smartphone is great for:

  • Sharing messages and alerts with your local community
  • Enabling connectivity in neighborhood dead-zones
  • Having a reliable backup network to use during emergency situations when cell service is down, like after a severe thunderstorm.

Ambassador

Dana is an outdoor enthusiast and self-proclaimed gear junkie who always brings his goTenna Mesh device with him on each outdoor adventure he takes. Living in downtown Anchorage, Alaska, gives him and his family the ability to go from an urban city environment to almost the middle of nowhere in less than 30 minutes. Having the right gear and equipment can mean all the world during routine outdoor adventures as well as ones that can easily turn into survival situations.

Alaska is located within the Pacific Ring of Fire, and in 2018 alone there were more than 55,000 earthquakes in Alaska, with a massive 7.1 magnitude earthquake striking just 7 miles north of Anchorage. Having a standalone mesh communications network can truly make a difference during emergency situations like this earthquake.
