Thanks to KC4TVO, N5TW, and VE1YZ

MPS traffic via the amateur bands is moving again towards Europe from our region.
While not 24 hours yet, it at least moves within 12 hours, band dependent, as opposed to just stalling.

Our three gateways have a path to you both, for passing onto auto-forwarding station VE1YZ.
VE1YZ is a key link right now for Trans Atlantic MPS to Europe.

In a week of testing over 15 MPS messages and many /pings/ have made it to Europe and back.

XE2BNC, first gateway for Email and MPS in Mexico, xe2/n6kzb

Victor Pinilla, XE1VP, President of Mexico's FMRE, (ARRL), visited the Baja radio club in late 2010 to see a demonstration of a Winlink portable HF station.

The simple act of sending email to his smart phone via HF and to Mexico City, was enough to get his attention. Subsequent discussions and meetings led to a desire to provide a WinLink gateway with Mexico pride of ownership. XE1VP is also a professor and head of the University of Mexico Technology Department.
