Ian Morris says:
Along with the WinLink Radio Mail System (RMS) PACKET gateway on 145.200Mhz which has been operating for some time. I now have an 80 m station on 3.6355Mhz. under test. This station is a RMS WINMOR gateway software with WINMOR sound card based TNC. These gateways allows users with RMS Express to send and receive messages over the radio. Messages can also be sent and received to any SMTP address. (that is normal email addresses) The Winlink system has 6 post offices around the world, these are called CMS (Central Message Server) where messages are stored. The RMS PACKET and RMS WINMOR provide radio access to the CMS network. More information is available from http://www.VK3IFM.org or Winlink.org
