WINLINK via VHF ax.25 packet is coming soon to Green Bay.

This is a placeholder for further information.

Hello,
Is this up and running? I think looking at the Winlink site it is. I'm going to need to do a little more reading to figure out what all I need to get to connect.

It's currently running in my garage as a placeholder. Waiting for some site infrastructure to be completed, then it'll be on-air in DePere.

Connecting is actually quite simple - You'll need client software (https://winlink.org/ClientSoftware), a TNC (either hardware or soundcard based), and a vhf radio.

For windows, I'd recommend Winlink Express (https://winlink.org/WinlinkExpress), and either a TNC-X (unfortunately no longer produced) or signalink usb w/ soundmodem software (http://uz7.ho.ua/packetradio.htm). I've used both setups with great success.

I'll update here once the system is 'officially' on-air.
