Ham Radio 360: Winlink, Winmor & RMS Express (an Introduction)

It usually begins like this "Cale, when are you going to do a show on....?" This time, it was Wayne (K4SPA) and he was again, asking me about doing a show on Winlink. I've too been wanting to learn more about Winlink since first trying my hand in it back in the Fall. While I've had limited (NVIS) success, I'm far from a 'user' or even half-way proficient in the mode. So I did what I do best; I found someone to help me further understand it, and I bring you along to learn with me! Brett...
