Featured Video

This video is the After Action Report for ILMI 2017, EMCOMM training with Winlink. The scenario was designed to mimic a terror attack on grid power and communications infrastructure. Hosted by Vapepa in Finland, emergency volunteers and amateur radio operators were deployed in order to pass messages and critical information throughout the disaster zone. Many thanks to all the operators participating, and many thanks for the hands on experience.

Mexico's FMRE Supports Winlink

FMRE letter

Mexico's leading amateur radio organization, Mexican Federation of Radioexperimentadores (FMRE), an IARU member organization, has affirmed its continued support of Winlink in a letter from the President of the Federation. Winlink is the primary digital communications delivery system for emergencies within Mexico by amateur radio operators.

There are four HF gateways that form the core of the Mexican-supported Winlink presence in Mexico. There is more about them in a previous article. Read an enlarged image of the letter by clicking on the letter.

Website Downtime

We have been working to improve your experience using our site, and the whole Winlink system. Please forgive our recent downtime, but its worth it.

You should notice much better load times of our pages, and in the future we'll have fewer downtime minutes during maintenance work. The reason is that we've moved our DNS and have incorporated 31 data centers worldwide to serve our pages. Now when you access our site, you may notice it comes from a different server--one much closer to you, and one using the latest speedy hardware. We've updated our defenses against ever-present online attacks, so we will have less maintenance to cause the server to be taken offline. Best of all, you will notice less when we take our main servers down, as pages will continue to be served to you from peripheral servers at 31 sites.

Enjoy!

Windows 10 IoT

Microsoft just released Windows 10 IoT (Internet of Things) at their GitHub site: http://ms-iot.github.io/content/GetStarted.htm
Hams are just now waking up to the possibilities.

You can download the official image of "Windows Embedded IoT" at: http://connect.microsoft.com/windowsembeddedIoT/Downloads/

If you're an Arduino, Galileo, or MinnowBoard fan, you can do the same.

Don't try to run WINMOR on these limited processors, but let us know of your successes on the Winlink email group "Winlink_Programs_Group" at yahoogroups.com!
