Winlink Thursdays

In his presentation on ARES at the BARC meeting on Jan 4, 2021, Frank WQ1O (District Emergency Coordinator for the Cape and Islands) mentioned Winlink Thursdays. These events, starting January 7, are coordinated by the American Red Cross EmComm Training group. The goal is to provide instruction and experience for anyone interested in Winlink, particularly those involved in Emergency Communications, which is what ARES is all about.The best way to find out about Winlink Thursdays is to join https://groups.io/g/ARC-EmComm-Training . It’s a new group, so content is building. Your subscription will yield announcements of all their events, including Winlink Thursdays. In the group’s “Messages” folder you will find “Winlink Thursdays resume!”.  Instructions for the January 7 Winlink Thursday are in an attachment to that message. The Winlink Proficiency Goals document referenced in the message is particularly useful: it indicates  needed skills and skill levels, and provides references to sources of training, documentation, and support.  I hope that BARC members will take advantage of this learning opportunity.  If you have questions about Winlink or Winlink Thursday, please contact Lem, W1LEM (w1lem@arrl.net). Operatation dates:  Jan 7, 14, 21, 28, Feb 11, Mar 11, Apr 8
