Hi All,

The Amateur Radio Safety Foundation and the Winlink Development Team seek a few special hams who can commit to providing a reliable public service. Join the network as a Winlink WINMOR sysop, and operate an HF WINMOR Radio Mail Server station.

We need well-located operators who can commit to installing, operating and maintaining high-quality HF WINMOR server stations. Your station should use a 100-watt HF transceiver capable of automatic control, a well-engineered resonant antenna or antenna system with automatic tuning, an effective ground system and

reliable back-up power. WINMOR radio mail server stations also require a dedicated late-model Windows computer with an uninterruptable power supply, a quality soundcard interface, and a permanent, reliable internet connection.

We ask HF RMS sysops to commit to keeping their stations listening on-air 24/7/365. This is the goal, not always achieved but nevertheless a solid commitment and something to strive for. The WDT tries to strike a responsible balance between using our precious HF bandwidth carefully by using a minimum of very reliable HF network stations and still provide user radio e-mail access--worldwide, in all conditions. We suggest that operators interested in

experimenting, EmComm stations interested in training, or those interested in operating a station part-time look into joining the WL2K network as a VHF/UHF RMS Packet station instead.

Contact Steve Waterman, K4CJX, for detailed information, to request RMS WINMOR server software and to be authorized as a network station.

Please contact Steve K4CJX directly via e-mail at k4cjxATcomcast.net. (replace AT with @ of course)

OR Rick Muething, KN6KB, via email at rmuething AT cfl.rr.com

Operating a WL2K network station is immensely rewarding. You will get sincere thanks and praise for what you do from HF users. Look into it! There is no better way to easily give back to the amateur radio, EmComm, and seafaring communities.

Good to hear about this effort, congratulations and thanks!

Allegiations about this all being a commercial venture would be easily countered by releasing winmor source code in the true ham radio spirit.
