*** Winlink Wednesday (Episode #317) ***

This being the first Wednesday of the month, weather snapshots are requested; see below for details (no attachments of any type, please). Standard check-ins are always welcome.

WHO: All amateur radio operators
WHAT: Winlink Wednesday
WHEN: Wednesday, 5 October 2022, 0000-2359 ET (UTC: 0400 Wed - 0359 Thu)
HOW: This net will accept check-ins via Winlink only. Send a check-in via any RMS during the timeframe above, or participate in one or both of the P2P sessions below.

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.

Please remember to use the correct format for check-in, as shown below (check-in message on a SINGLE LINE), or with optional weather snapshot on a second line, over an RF connection.
