THIS MESSAGE WAS SENT TO A LIST BY THE WINLINK TEAM ON BEHALF OF GREG, KW6GB.
Special request from the Winlink Development Team (WDT) regarding Winlink Wednesday:
Thanks to today’s (8/29/2021) landfall of Hurricane Ida, the WDT has asked that we help minimize the competition for US midwestern, southern and mid-Atlantic HF RMS stations on the amateur bands this week. They would like to be sure these remain as clear as possible for emergency and disaster relief traffic so that EOCs and deployed stations have their best shot at making connections with minimal waiting.
Consequently, when checking in to Winlink Wednesday this week (9/1/2021), please use VHF or UHF gateways only, or simply participate in one of the P2P sessions, which do not occupy gateway frequencies.
To aid in this effort, I will NOT be distributing a reminder via Winlink this week. The reminder announcement is already posted on the WW website (https://winlinkwednesday.net)
, and will be posted on Facebook on Tuesday. Please help spread the word to participants who might not use Facebook.
