Updated – Red Cross Winlink Drill – November 14
Update – the folks who run the Florida Winlink Net have posted a FAQ answering questions like:
- Solo or Team?
- How many modes should I use?
- What is the format of the tactical address to send to?
You can find this FAQ here:
From Mike Walters, W8ZY CT ARES SEC via W4WTN and AuxComm of TN.
There will be a Red Cross drill using Winlink on November 14th.
The purpose of this drill is to encourage more operators to learn about Winlink messaging and how to use the template for preformatted messages. The weekly practice has gone very well and more operators are participating.
The linked PDF below gives an overview of the drill and specific instructions on how to create and post the messages.
The drill is open to all operators and I encourage all ARES groups to offer this as a training exercise.
