Winlink check-in to the WCARES Net on Mondays

If you have Winlink capability over RF, you can check in to the regular Monday night nets by sending a Winlink message to, between the hours of 06:00 and 18:00 Central (6 AM to 6 PM) on the Monday of the net.

Check-ins via Winlink must be sent over radio unless you are outside the WCARES repeater coverage area and don’t have HF capability.

Include the mode you are using to send your check-in message in the subject line (for example: ARDOP, VARA, Pactor, Packet.) Please also include the full date of the net you’re checking into in either the subject line or body of the message.

Like the regular nets, the first Monday of each month is Alternate Power so try to check in using an alternate power source.  Whether using alternate or commercial power for these Alternate Power nets, list your power source in at least the subject line of your check-in message.
