local, not for profit, cooperative network
Join us for a Board meeting of the La Canada Wireless Association (LCWA) on the second Monday of each month from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. Meetings are open to all current and prospective members. Board meetings are held at the conference room of the National Center for Genome Research (NCGR) at 2935 Rodeo Park Drive East, Santa Fe, NM 87505.
The LCWA toll-free tech support line is an automated system. 800-536-6149. The line has an updated recording of the current status of the network. If there is an outage, the recording will let you know the details. If the recording does not mention an outage, but you are experiencing one, leave a voice mail and one of our volunteers will get back to you.
LCWA was founded in 2003 as a not for profit cooperative. If you’d like to know more about becoming a member of LCWA, please follow this LINK and fill out the form. The initial membership fee depends on the type of radio equipment that is required. The monthly membership fee ranges from $40-60 depending on the the chosen speed.
As an all-volunteer organization we rely on members to install their own equipment (with our help, of course). Volunteer opportunities range from coordinating other volunteers, to digging a hole, installing a radio or updating an access point. Check out our Facebook Page for notices of our Saturday morning volunteer meetings.
The current LCWA network improvement project is a 5 AC radio conversion. At the end of this project we hope to make available 10 and 20 Mbps options for members. New member radios are currently being installed to facilitate this upgrade. As of May 2017 the project is 85% complete.
