Winlink Training

Winlink Email Training is being offered by the ARES group.  Here is a
copy of the invitation sent our way by Van Malan (NH7IT)

QUOTE
Aloha Hawaii,

Many of you have probably heard about Winlink email.  This digital means
of sending email over Amateur Radio bands is gaining popularity in the
emergency communication field.  The American Red Cross recognizes
Winlink as an important means of sending messages.

See https://tinyurl.com/y3jzsvcl

Our ARES leadership would like to extend the opportunity for you to
learn and practice sending Winlink messages.  We plan to have a weekly
practice and learning session starting in January.  I plan to send to
each member that joins a practice assignment that you have a week or
more to complete.

Please send me your call and starting soon I will send to you via
Winlink your weekly assignment.  If you are new to Winlink, ask for help
and I will send you instructions on how to start learning about Winlink
or you can visit www.winlink.org.
