Ladies and Gentlemen,
The Winlink Net is back. In the subject line please put “net”, and in the message body put your power source. The reason for that is that once per month, as you know, we do check-ins on the regular net with an emphasis on alternate power, and instead of sending out a reminder on those weeks it will be much easier if you simply include it in the message body each time that you check in so that it’ll be already be there and will be habit.
Winlink will now be allowed as a means to check into the regular Monday night net. Anyone wishing to check into the regular Monday night net by way of Winlink should send an email to WC4EOC@winlink.org by way of RF only. Telnet check-ins do not count, since it seems only logical that if it’s to be allowed to count as a check-in to the regular Monday night net, simply sending an email through the internet defeats the purpose of what the net is trying to accomplish.
Your message should be sent Monday after 7 a.m. and no later than 6 p.m. so that all stations using Winlink have the time to receive an acknowledgement and to get tabulated and passed on to whoever is the NCS for that night.
