Winlink Checkin's Weekly

19-06-2020 Weekly VK/ZL Winlink Check-in

Was some great check-in’s this week and some challenging themselves from the easy choice. Great to see that people can get a connection in a significant geographic location should they need to pass information.

Well done to all that took part.

Great to see some making the effort to test a portable setup even at home and some more Raspberry Pi use coming along.

VK3FIN, Russell with early contact with this great contact.

“My setup is an FT-857D through a loaded dipole for 40 and 80 Meters. The computer is just an old laptop running Windows 10. I’ve had quite a bit of success getting into Hawaii stations which are close to 9000K from here but its hit and miss. Normally I get good connections to Wangaratta at 255K and Sydney at 750K away.”
