FMRE Mexico Thanks Tom Whiteside N5TW

FMRE is Mexico's ARRL. This is a nice letter of thanks for the support Winlink and Tom Whiteside, N5TW, gave during recent earthquake and hurricane Katia, affecting Mexico all in one week. Tom directed his superstation's antenna arrays to Mexico's hard-hit areas.

Dear Tom Whiteside, N5TW,

Tom, on behalf of Federacion Mexicana de Radioexperimentadores, A.C. (FMRE), thank you for your support with all the traffic of emails during the last week earthquake and hurricane that affected Mexico. Without any hesitation, Winlink proved once again, it’s the best communication service on emergency situations like the ones we have last week.

Our Winlink gateways lost internet sometimes and yours gave us the support we need to forward messages. If you need something from us, we will be glad to help.

Alfonso Tamez, XE2O
President FMRE
