The Winlink development team have asked for a temporary suspension of HF winlink routine net checkins and other practice traffic, to reduce the load on the frequencies used for HF Winlink RMS stations.
The goal is to avoid contention for those frequencies between routine practice traffic and traffic related to Hurricane Ida emergency operations. This isn’t that the Winlink system can’t handle the load, it’s just avoiding contention for those frequencies.
Telnet and VHF/UHF traffic is no problem, so if you want to check in via VHF/UHF or telnet, go ahead. But if you were planning on checking in via HF, please hold off until the Ida operations wind down.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation on this.
