On-Air in 1999, On-Air Today -- The 2014 Platinum Club of Sysops

We are fortunate to have generous gateway station sysops that provide equipment, technical expertise, utility costs, and everything else it takes to keep RMS gateway stations on-air and on-line 24/7/365. All sysops deserve a note of thanks from users who frequent their stations.

There are a few guys who stand above the crowd--a few whose loyalty and generosity are on-going after starting at the beginning. These are sysops who deserve extra-special thanks. They each have been on-air and online as HF gateways since back when we called them PMBOs, at the birth of modern Winlink 2000--in 1999! All are "baked into" the history of Winlink. Today, they are among the most-used and reliable gateway stations (sysops!) in the whole worldwide network.

Thank you, and congratulations to
Grady Williams, K6IXA, Atwater, California
Eric Simmons, KB6YNO, Petaluma, California
Neil Hughes, VE1YZ, Halifax, Nova Scotia
San Diego Yacht Club Amateur Radio Group , W6IM, and Rod McLennan, W6MWB, San Diego, California

Updated Video Tutorial from K4REF

Early last year Rick Frost, K4REF, contributed an excellent video series for new Winlink users. Today, we present his updated productions for 2014. This is worth your time, and is of a quality in content and presentation far above most of what you'll find if you search the web. Thanks, Rick!

You can watch the videos right from our knowledge bank, here.

Non-conforming Gateways

The following gateway stations are running out-of-date software as of Monday, October 6. Soon we will discontinue server support for the old methods of station reporting that these stations use. As a consequence, they will appear to 'disappear' from the system as reported by the maps and lists on this web site, by third-party reporting tools and web sites, and within client software channel lists. This list is a snapshot. A current list is available at this link.

We are attempting to contact the sysops of these stations. Most are running third-party gateway software. If you know the sysops of these stations, please inform them of their non-conforming status. All they need to do to continue to operate normally is to update to the latest version of their software.
