Default FREE WINMOR Winlink 2000 Ham HF SSB email.





RMS Express radio email client.


Position Reporting


Hi All,

There are two new WINMOR Winlink 2000 HF SSB Email servers in Southern Africa.

With Winlink 2000, you can send and receive emails and all kinds of attachments, such as text files, charts, weather forecasts, GRIB files and pictures. All for free.
From the 4x4 out in the bundu with no Internet around for hundreds of miles.

V51PJ - WINMOR and Pactor - Namib Desert, Namibia 14.104 MHz Center
ZS1RS - WINMOR and Pactor - Cape Town, South Africa 14.109 MHz Center

These stations operate on both WINMOR and Pactor.

Please update your Airmail channel list.

OR

Download the free WINMOR (RMS Express) sound card TNC software.
No Pactor TNC is required for WINMOR.

RMS Express can be downloaded here:
Also download the required free ITSHFSB VOACAP HF propagation prediction software.

An excellent WINMOR tutorial can be found here:
http://www.winlink.org/webfm_send/184

Excellent How-to videos can be found here:
http://www.winlink.org/K4REF_Videos

The interface between the computer and the radio, is the Signalink USB.
Or any ham radio digital mode interface with PTT.
Or any homebrew interface with PTT.

OR

Acoustic (audio) coupling.
Use an external computer microphone to listen the radios's speaker.
Use the radios's microphone to listen to the computer's speaker cross-wise.
Turn the radio's VOX on.
Set the VOX delay to minimum.

Keep the environmental noise low.

You need an amateur radio licence to transmit on these frequencies.

Now also a new Pactor RMS in Maputo.

C91PM.

Hopefully he will also run WINMOR as a mode soon.

Please update your Airmail and RMS Express channel lists to show this station up too.

Default Mail server in Pretoria

Another FREE radio mail server (RMS) for WINMOR is now up and running 24/7 in Pretoria as well.

Update your RMS Express channel list via the Internet to let this station show up as a connection option on your software.
