LARC will be hosting a Winlink class Tuesday March 17th at 7:00 PM.  The class will be instructed by Gary WA5TED and will be open to the public.  Any Ham radio operators are welcome to attend.  Topics will include how to download and install, how to set up an account, radio configuration, sending and receiving emails, and how to generate forms such as an ICS-213.  The class will be free of charge and we encourage anyone interested in emergency communications to attend.

Winlink is a worldwide radio email service that uses radio pathways where the internet is not present, and is capable of operating completely without the internet–automatically–using smart-network radio relays. Winlink provides its users email with attachments, position reporting, weather and information bulletins, and is well-known for its role in interoperable emergency and disaster relief communications.

Licensed Winlink operators/stations use both amateur radio and government radio frequencies worldwide. The system is built, operated and administered entirely by licensed “Ham” volunteers.
