*** 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).

Sample ICS-213 Check-In
