RMS Winmor (email over radio) BBS System
The BBS system is growing, with 26 members on line.
The BBS system is proving itself reliable and effective for information exchange and distribution. At the same time, the TAPRN voice net continues to be challenged by propagation, QRN, QRM and low participation.
1. All TAPRN members are strongly engouraged to equip for digital modes, including Winmor using the RMS Express software. No additional equipment is needed (in most cases) and assistance with technical issues is readily available from existing users. Information and free software available at: http://www.winlink.org/WINMOR/.
2. Participation in the TAPRN BBS system is limited to TAPRN members and requires registration via a sysop. TAPRN members interested in participating in the TAPRN BBS system must send Winlink email to either W0ECM via email@example.com or KB1TCE via firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name, call, city, state and commercial email address
3. TAPRN BBS participants should ACCESS THE BBS REGULARLY (once daily at a minimum). The BBS system issues periodic surveys and exercises for information exchange and operational readiness assessment, as well as TAPRN bulletins. You may also exchange private messages with other TAPRN members via the BBS.
4. Make a renewed committment to participation in the TAPRN voice net…3.818000Mhz, Sunday evenings at 2100 EST (Monday 0200Z). Volunteers are needed for Net Manager and Net Control duty. If you are able to fill either of these positions, please contact jess, W0ECM: email@example.com.
Fulfillment of the TAPRN mission will only come about through the active participation and support of the membership.
Will you be “prepared”?
