WINLINK CHECK-IN NET



While we show this "net" on Mondays, actually this is something you can do anytime during the week, prior to 9AM on Tuesdays.
The "net" consists of sending a radio email (using WINLINK) to [email protected]    When inside WINLINK, you only need to address W4AKH.
The email can be sent by Telnet inside WINLINK if you don't have a radio connection yet, but we encoruage you to develop VHF and/or HF radio connections.   We have multiple VHF RMS gateways locally, and there are  >100 HF Gateways you could use nationwide as well as many within Florida.

You can even "check in" from SHARES to the same address, W4AKH if you wish.

The "report" comes out on Tuesdays and typically there are scores and scores of stations participating and a hundred or more msssages sent.   Latest Florida Winlink Check-In Net Report

As data communications, particularly using WINLINK or FLDGI, become more and more important to backup emergency communications, many of our group are well-acquainted with these capabilities.   If you would like help learning how to accomplish radio emails like this, we'll be happy to help you!!
