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.

DXpedition blog via HB9AK

ON4GS and ON4CO are on a DXpedition to St. Kilda Island (EU-059). They are updating their blog automatically with e-mails sent via the WINLINK system. A nice application! They are just using a FT-817 (5W) and a PTC-II modem.

Attention All Winlink Users!

On Sunday, July 16th from 15:00 UTC until 17:00 UTC (two hours) the Winlink development team will be testing a new central messaging server (CMS) system.

This test requires no action on your part, other than to use the system as you normally would during the period. However, if you use it during this period, potential impacts could include:

  • Temporary system outage (unlikely)
  • Messages from a winlink account to another winlink account that are not retrieved by the addressee before the end of the testing period will be lost. Mail to Internet (SMTP) accounts as well as mail from Internet accounts will not be impacted.
  • Mail from Internet accounts may be duplicated (received a second time) after the testing period.
  • Changes made to account settings (password, forwarding address, sysop details, etc.) during the test period will be lost.

With these impacts in mind, we hope you help us by using the system during this period.

Thanks.
Winlink Development Team
