Can we expand this statewide?
Every week operators in Hamilton Co are encouraged
to send a message via Winlink to each other. Now,
we would like to encourage Winlink use state-wide.
I would like to start by creating a list of ARES Winlink
users in Ohio.
Send a Winlink message to KC8EGV and I'll add you
to the list. At least once a week I'll send a general
message out to the list to give everyone practice.
We'll start with plain text formatted messages and
hopefully move up to forms.
So if you use Winlink (or want to give it a try) send a
message to me via Winlink. It does not matter if you
use a local gateway, HF or telnet to get started.
Actually, Telnet is a good way to get used to the
software without having to interface with a radio.
I hope to get a message from you soon. For more
information, please contact me at:

Winlink can be a very productive communication
system- it’s proven and has been in use for years.
This is how personal ships at sea communicate their
position, and handle their email needs. In a disaster,
emails sent via winlink arrive as normal emails, to
which anyone can respond. There is a movement
starting to expand Winlink within Ohio- read more
here about the whole thing:
The traditional means of connecting is through a
packet modem (Pricey!!) but there is Winmore
software using your PC’s soundcard. Anyone in this
area using it?
