Featured Video

This video is the After Action Report for ILMI 2017, EMCOMM training with Winlink. The scenario was designed to mimic a terror attack on grid power and communications infrastructure. Hosted by Vapepa in Finland, emergency volunteers and amateur radio operators were deployed in order to pass messages and critical information throughout the disaster zone. Many thanks to all the operators participating, and many thanks for the hands on experience.

Answers About Winlink on Ham Radio 360 Podcast

Cale Nelson, K4CDN, puts on a great podcast: Ham Radio 360. Last April (episode 76) he discussed the Winlink radio email system, WINMOR and Winlink Express with Brett Smith, KE0EWY. It's not a deep dive into the breadth of Winlink, but a great introduction for an operator who needs good answers to get started. Play the episode in a new window. Or listen on YouTube.

FMRE Mexico Thanks Tom Whiteside N5TW

FMRE is Mexico's ARRL. This is a nice letter of thanks for the support Winlink and Tom Whiteside, N5TW, gave during recent earthquake and hurricane Katia, affecting Mexico all in one week. Tom directed his superstation's antenna arrays to Mexico's hard-hit areas.

Subject: Appreciation from FMRE

Dear Tom Whiteside, N5TW,

Tom, on behalf of Federacion Mexicana de Radioexperimentadores, A.C. (FMRE), thank you for your support with all the traffic of emails during the last week earthquake and hurricane that affected Mexico. Without any hesitation, Winlink proved once again, it’s the best communication service on emergency situations like the ones we have last week.

Our Winlink gateways lost internet sometimes and yours gave us the support we need to forward messages. If you need something from us, we will be glad to help.

Alfonso Tamez, XE2O
President FMRE

Superstation RMS N5TW Dedicating Antennas to Hurricane Traffic

Until not needed, I am running with my 20M PACTOR/WINMOR frequency dedicated to one radio (so no waiting) with three 45 foot long boom monobanders phased on a 130 ft tower pointed at Florida instead of the usual dipole. In addition, have another smaller monobander in the stack pointed at the Caribbean for other affected areas.
