Our county ARES will be participating only via Winlink. I will be messaging from home via Winmor on 40m (Flex 6300) and Winlink on 2m (TNC-X to Yaesu 8900r).

Have a great exercise!

I was the only one in my county ARES group that could send via Winlink today (me the newbie).

I got the ARC-6409 form sent off and got an acknowledgement back from ARCATL.

Drill successful for me today. How was the drill for you Brian?

Way to go! :cool:

Ended up working in the vault on our repeater and wasn't able to participate. We had several members participate and we were outside of the drill area, so no traffic to handle other than the check-in.

The Part A voice traffic net was interesting to listen to. Simulated broken generators and supply deliveries and all sorts of simulated situations arose.

I'm also hoping to have Winlink up on HF over the weekend.
Titanium do you have "Winlink Wednesdays" traffic drill where you are?
There is an award when you reach 100 checkins via Winlink.
Each mode counts as a separate check-in in a single day, P-t-p, vhf, the HF modes.
Once a month you have to use an ICS-213 form.
