Using Winlink (email over radio)

IEEE members, and anyone (IEEE or not) interested in the IEEE MOVE Radio Club, should attend,

The program will be an introduction to Winlink with lots of links and references to learn about this valuable resource.  Like DMR radio introduced in last month's meeting, Winlink is a versatile tool to help us keep in touch, this time in writing.  Winlink permits email over radio and is fully interactive with the ubiquitous Internet email that we all use.  With Winlink email, messages and data can be sent by radio-to-radio, by radio-to-Internet and by Internet-to-radio, providing a powerful error-free communications tool that can be used when a party to the communication is isolated from the Internet or cell phone service.  Whether at your cabin in the woods, camping, traveling on your boat, or operating in a disaster area, you can remain in touch with the outside World, and the outside World can remain in touch with you.  Someone enabled with Winlink can even send a text message to someone with a cell phone--if they have cell service.  A safe-and-well text message is always comforting to family and friends that might be worried about someone isolated from infrastructure-based communications.
