We are fortunate to have generous gateway station sysops that provide equipment, technical expertise, utility costs, and everything else it takes to keep RMS gateway stations on-air and on-line 24/7/365. All sysops deserve a note of thanks from users who frequent their stations.
There are a few guys who stand above the crowd--a few whose loyalty and generosity are on-going after starting at the beginning. These are sysops who deserve extra-special thanks. They each have been on-air and online as HF gateways since back when we called them PMBOs, at the birth of modern Winlink 2000--in 1999! All are "baked into" the history of Winlink. Today, they are among the most-used and reliable gateway stations (sysops!) in the whole worldwide network.
Thank you, and congratulations to
