 The UKHASnet Network Structure is similar to the APRS system used by Amateur Radio. In that there is no collision detection, no retransmission,​ and no Error Correction. The UKHASnet Network Structure is similar to the APRS system used by Amateur Radio.

-* All packets are unreliable, like UDP on Computer Networks. A collision with another transmitted packet, or a burst of interference at the wrong moment may cause your packet to be lost in the network as if it never existed.+  ​* All packets are unreliable, like UDP on Computer Networks.

-* A gateway or any connection to the ukhas.net database is not required for a local network. The ukhas.net database and associated [[api|API]] is just intended to be a community-supported service for archiving and visualisation of sensor data. If you don't need it, you don't have to use it! Or if you'd like to use your own system/​application,​ that's fine too.+  ​* A gateway or any connection to the ukhas.net database is not required for a local network.
