Planning to Operate Winlink on Field Day?

June 8, 2015--Winlink operators are planning now for Field Day. It's worth points (in several ways), and an excellent way to show off the system to those unfamiliar.

The Yahoo group guys at WL2KEmComm make it a little easier by using a database of participating stations willing to exchange Field Day messages. Add your callsign to the database, and copy it just before the event to have a list of callsigns to exchange messages with. Find the database in the 'Database' area. Look for the 2015 database.

North American (ARRL) Field Day is on June 27-28 this year.

San Diego Server Maintenance

San Diego-based Web, CMS servers, and Web Services were down at 1714 Friday, June 5 UT, for the addition of memory to hardware. Service interruption was minimal. Radio email service continued normally and uninterrupted.

International Health Service Needs Radio Operators

I just received this message from John Kirckof, KB0UUP, Director at IHS. They need radio ops. Call John at 320-634-4386 if you are interested. Here is good reading on what a trip to Honduras with IHS is like.


I just received an update from IHS board members on some of the shortages for the upcoming mission trips. As an IHS supporter, we are very hopeful that joining us will work for you.

Our important need in February.... We need your help as we are in critical need of radio operators ! We can also use docs, pharmacists, nurses plus 1 or 2 NPs or PAs. This includes RNs, LPNs, Paramedics, EMTs, CNAs, etc. . At this point we do need a few more support people but we are working on that, too.

Note... we are already signing up folks for the February trip now as we have quite a few openings.

Also note... Whether this mission trip works for you or not, do talk with others about our need for ham operators plus medical and support people. That is the best way we have to get new folks to join us and to get financial support.

Thanks for any help you can give in support of the very poor of Honduras.
