ARRL Article about Puerto Rico

Nice ARRL article. Note Winlink use near the bottom.

I have seen many of the messages pass through gateways mostly on 40, 20, and 17 meters. The content is long lists of requests and Situation reports.
Also attached spreadsheets for data entry into the Red Cross Safe & Well Program. Sending and receiving via an email address by radio has insured accuracy and a written record.

Notice to other lone-wolf antenna workers out there: GET SOME ADDITIONAL HELP!
