Winlink Exercise

posted Jan 16, 2021, 10:20 PM by Brad Rupp

We are going to be starting a Winlink exercise in the next few weeks. Please fill out the form below to let us know about your thoughts on getting a Winlink training/exercise going. Over the last several years with all the events that we have seen, things like Winlink are starting to make their benefits known. One of the things that we should be familiar with is the function of Winlink and especially the forms. In hopes of saving a forest, the digital versions of the ICS and radiogram forms that are in Winlink will give us the chance to get used to using them should an incident or emergency occur. We know that there are numerous groups around the country that have occasional exercises or periodic check ins. What we would like to get started would be a little different. We would be using the forms to send messages to the exercise director. By doing this we are hoping to help people gain experience with properly composing and replying using the various ICS forms and the ARRL radiogram.

Salt Lake County ARES will be holding an exercise on August 29 from 10am-2pm. We will be concentrating on data transmission. Below you will find links to the exercise program. It is spelled out and we hope that we can get all the local clubs in Salt Lake County to participate. We also welcome any individual to participate. If some of the mode of data transmission you are not familiar with, we have recorded classes that we have put on and they can be viewed at Salt Lake County ARES You Tube channel. We have included ICS form 205 with the radio frequencies, the ICS form 214 for you to fill out, and the items that you will be able to complete toward your AUXCOM certification.

We hope to have you participate. Please pass this along to anyone that you think would be interested.
