There is a new custom Winlink template to be used for weekly ACS/ARES check-ins. When checking in, send your Winlink Message to: firstname.lastname@example.org. It will be automatically processed and if everything looks good, you should receive an email confirmation to your Winlink address within 10 minutes.
You can download the template via this link:
Once unzipped, place all three template files (not the “Instructions” directory or this file) in your “RMS Express\Global Folders\Templates\” directory and you will see the new template under the the “Global” list.
Restart Winlink and you should be set. If you have questions, feel free to contact Stu Sheldon-AG6AG at email@example.com.
Over the last few weeks a group of VC ACS/ARES members have been working to get on the air using Winlink on HF and VHF. This is to prepare for a “ShakeOut” exercise on Oct 17.
We have our next Zoom meeting this Wednesday, September 9, at 7 p.m. where we’ll review the simulated earthquake scenario, how to complete the DYFI form, test results using Winlink under conditions of low power and discuss a VHF comms exercise as part of the ShakeOut event.
If you would like to join us there is still ample time to get on the air using Winlink and participate in the ShakeOut. If you are not ready to work digital ops just yet, the VHF comms exercise is simplex phone and may be more to your liking.
