SAVE THE DATE: WINLINK 2022 EXERCISE
Our next multi-agency Winlink exercise will be held between February 26 and March 6, 2022. The main goal is to get people to load Winlink and gain some experience. Having other stations up and running in Peer-2-Peer mode gives people a chance to use Packet P2P mode on the air with a local station. This mode is deemed important in an emergency.
Check the Winlink-2022-Exercise page for details as they become available.
