digital participation
Digital Participation
  • Observation:
    • Noticed only about 10% or less of ARES members check into a net via a digital mode
  • Why?
    • Too expensive?
    • Don’t know where to start?
    • Don’t have the time?
    • Complicated?
  • Who operated a digital mode in last 30 days?
  • Who exchanged an E-mail message in last 30 days?
digital modes
Digital Modes
  • Email IS a digital mode
  • Keyboard to Keyboard
    • BBS, Chat, E-mail, Web Browser
    • E-mail is universal
  • Automatic Position Reporting (APRS)
  • Packet, Pactor
  • SSTV, DIGSSTV
  • VoIP - DV (digital voice)
    • Repeater Linking (IRLP, EchoLink, D-Star)
    • Skype – (remote rig operations)

Need more Digital participation in EmComm:
    • Computer is part of every day life
    • Already familiar with E-mail, instant messaging, etc.
    • Should be pretty easy for anyone to operate a digital mode
  • Some Digital modes can be complex:
    • Issues with software configuration
    • Getting the connections right
    • Rig control and audio adjustments
slide10
Elmers:
    • Education and training
      • Help with rig interface
      • Software installation and configuration
    • Practice
      • Get used to the applications
      • Experiment, try things out
    • Share the Knowledge
      • Presentations and Hands on Workshops
winlink 2000

A global system that allows Amateur Radio Operators to send and receive standard internet E-mail with binary attachments via ham radio…

  • …with or without a direct internet connection

winlink 200013

Very Flexible

  • Multiple connectivity options:
    • Telnet directly to server using various internet connections
      • Ethernet - DSL / Cable / Satellite / GSM / CDMA
      • Wifi - 802.11a/b/g HSMM
      • D-star - ID-1
      • Use Airmail or Paclink MP (Outlook Express)

Winlink 2000

  • Multiple connectivity options:
    • Pactor 1, 2, 3:
      • Airmail Client
      • Paclink MP (Outlook Express)
      • Through RMS Pactor (PMBO)
      • F6FBB B2 Compression

winlink 200016

What does Winlink offer the served agency?

Winlink 2000

  • The capability to send and receive written messages with 100% accuracy to/from any individual with an email address
    • Multiple recipients
  • Allows emergency teams in remote areas without internet access to receive email or peer to peer messages in the field
  • Prevents them from having to transcribe, format or modify documents before sending
winlink 200017

System core

Winlink 2000

  • CMS: Central message server. This is the main hub of the system. There are three with full-time redundant mirroring of each other and real-time failover. They are geographically dispersed. Accept connections from PMBOs, Telpac, Paclink, and Airmail via Telnet
  • PMBO: Participating Mail Box Operator/Office. This is the primary hub for user connections. Most support Telnet and many support VHF and HF connections
  • PMBOs will be replaced by RMS Packet, RMS Pactor and RMS Relay

WiFi, Telnet, Web

Existing Ham Radio Networks

winlink 200019

The HAM’s applications:

Winlink 2000

  • Airmail:This is the primary single user client. Connects via Telnet to the CMS similar to the way your favorite email client connects to the internet …
    • … Or, it can connect to a Telpac node via VHF/UHF Packet or directly to a PMBO via HF Pactor.
  • Telpac:The name meansTELnet toPACketbridge. This is exactly what it does. It is the program that allows the ham operator to bridge the “Last Mile” on VHF/UHF. Quickly, easily, and cheaply.
  • Telpac will be replaced by RMS Packet
winlink 200021

The HAM’s applications:

Winlink 2000

  • Paclink:This is a more complex user client with considerably more flexibility.
  • It functions as a stand alone POP/SMTP server for a LAN.
  • Messages are composed/read using popular E-mail programs.
  • It can provide tactical email addressing:
    • GACobbEOC @ winlink .org
    • ARCshelter-1 @ winlink .org
    • All tied to the Ham’s callsign when traversing the Winlink system.
  • Paclink provides multiple transport connections to CMS
