I wanted to share the KH6YY story, put together by Stacy (KH6OWL), with all of you who contributed to a successful test, before its is pushed thru various web media.

 

We learned a lot about the forwarding functions of Winlink that made possible the KH6YY automatic routing of traffic from 40m to 20m.  It was too late to properly “wire the RF links” from our other gateways into a well defined network to include their traffic into the forwarding test.  Only 40m traffic sent directly to KH6YY made it to Internet via the 20m link to the mainland, which by the way had a 5-9++ signal the whole period with PACTOR modem transfer rates at the maximum speed.

 

We will have future periodic forwarding tests in Hawaii without the link to the mainland, now that we better understand configuration parameters.  Lots to learn.

 

Mahalo to all for your help in the KH6YY testing.

Joe,

Thanks. Good story.  KH6YY was a good gateway on 40m Saturday.

Aloha,
