Winlink Express HTML Forms Are Going Statewide in Oregon

We received this news from Oregon:

“I am pleased to announce that, through the hard work of Mike Burton and the WDT, the State of Oregon is transitioning to all HTML Template Forms for traffic from County EOCs to the Oregon Office of Emergency Management. The forms will also find frequent use from one served agency to another, and from agencies to the County EOC.

The new forms closely follow the design of plain text templates previously used by the State OEM, but avoids the issues of installation and updating, and are self-hinting to lessen the need for extensive training. The forms are now included as part of the standard forms now distributed as part of Winlink Express.”

Attention RMS Sysops with SCS Dragon Modems

There has been an ongoing issue with the SCS Dragon modem randomly becoming inoperable until rebooted. This is a repetitive issue, and has finally been identified by SCS.

From SCS:

"SCS has identified the source of the problem. The EEPROM cells that carry the log pointers are worn out after > 1 M write cycles. Depending on the traffic load of the modems, that can happen after several months of service. SCS is currently developing a system logging format that no longer needs these EEPROM pointers.

New firmware version 2.30.19 _beta provides a work around and should be used until we release the official 2.30.xx firmware.

If you don’t need system logging at all, you can switch it off permanently using the command (command mode, cmd: prompt): SYS LOG DISABLED 1 and then save that parameter permanently using the SAP command."

Attention Winlink Express Users

IMPORTANT: Please ensure you're using the latest version of Winlink Express (formerly RMS Express). Much time and effort has gone into enhancing the client program features as well as fixing bugs that hamper operation. Those with really older versions can experience problems as newer version move forward.

For those who want the most recent beta, please go into Winlink Express SETUP, and insure that this option is checked. Using a beta version assists the developers greatly to provide additional user-friendly features. For those who are not interested in the latest beta, be sure to uncheck this option in Winlink Express setup.

If you have update issues, you can uninstall, and re-install the latest Winlink Express production version.

Thanks much,
