I want to let everybody know that there is a new Winlink 2000 Radio Message Server Node (RMS) W2DAN-10 on VHF at 145.010 It is time to dust of those TNC’s and check out Winlink2000. There are some good lessons online that will help you understand Winlink 2000 at http://www.winlink2000.org and joining the Winlink 2000 Yahoo group.
Winlink, also known as the “Winlink 2000 Network”, is a worldwide radio messaging system that combines the Internet and Amateur Radio technologies. The system provides such services as:
- e-Mail with attachments
- Position reporting
- Graphic and text weather bulletins
- Emergency and Relief communications
