Winlink (Radio Message Service) for the next ELMER Class!


Winlink is a world-wide system used by hams to transfer e-mail via radio and is heavily relied upon by hams at sea (maritime mobile) and by amateur radio emergency communications.  It is also used by MARS and Homeland Security.  At Field Day Brian Teters sent messages to the City of Edmond Emergency Operations using Winlink!  Winlink uses standardized forms as well as the NTFS formatted messages.

Please join us Thursday July 20 at 6:30 PM at the club station, 28 E. Main, Edmond, room 219 for a presentation on the Winlink software by Brian Teters AE5MT.  Brian will explain the Winlink network and actually send a Winlink message.  We hope to see everyone there!

Thanks to the Edmond Amateur Radio Society for this information.
