*** Winlink Wednesday (Episode #334) ***
2/1/2023

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, 1 February 2023, 0000-2359 ET (UTC: 0500 Wed - 0459 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.
