Please join Cheatham Co. ARES for Winlink 101 – Basic Training.  Anyone with interest is invited!  Feel free to forward this invitation to other amateur radio operators or organizations.

 

Winlink is a worldwide radio messaging system that uses amateur-band radio frequencies to provide radio interconnection services that include email with attachments, position reporting, weather bulletins, emergency relief communications, and message relay.  In this training, we will break down the different modes, explain the basic functions and let you practice connecting to a radio to send messages through Winlink.

This venue, provided by Wayne Eby (W4EBY), will allow us more space, better internet, ability to set up actual radios to connect.  Thank you Wayne!
