*** Winlink Wednesday (Episode #215) ***
Third Wednesday of the month, so check-ins using an attached Winlink-native ICS-213 form are requested. Step-by-step instructions are here if you need them:
If you cannot use the form, standard check-ins are always welcome (no weather snapshots, please).
WHO: All amateur radio operators located in Virginia.
WHAT: Winlink Wednesday (Virginia's Weekly Winlink Net)
WHEN: Wednesday, 21 October 2020, 0000-2359 EDT
HOW: This net will accept check-ins via Winlink only.
Please do not use a "Telnet Winlink" connection (which defeats the purpose of Winlink). The goal is to have the message leave your station via RF.
