Hope you all are doing well. It’s time for the monthly SCARA Meeting. It will be a Zoom meeting, this Monday Feb 14. The business meeting will be held starting at 6:30 PM, and the general meeting will start right after that, at approximately 7:00 PM.
The February SCARA Meeting Program will be on Winlink presented by our very own Fred – W2EMS.
Winlink Global Radio Email®️…
…is a network of amateur radio and authorized government-licensed stations that provide worldwide radio email using radio pathways where the internet is not present. The system is built, operated and administered entirely by licensed “Ham” volunteers. It supports email with attachments, position reporting, weather and information bulletins, and is well-known for its role in interoperable emergency and disaster relief communications. It is capable of operating completely without the internet–automatically–using smart-network radio relays. Licensed Winlink operators/stations use both amateur radio and government radio frequencies worldwide.
It should be interesting to see. I’m sure that Fred will wind in the emergency communications aspects of Winlink.
