Hi Bill and the group,
To answer Bill's questions...  Yes I always connect to the K0SI RMS nodes either packet or HF when using Winlink.  (Except on one occasion I could not connect on the HF side so it was off to a station in Arkansas.)
Without changing antennas, I cannot connect to the K0SI packet node directly so I go thru the MEPN site MJEF Digipeter K0ETY-2.
I will post a second message titled "Florida Winlink Check-In" with that information.  It is truly simple.

Florida Winlink Net Check-in

Jim Biggerstaff N0TKN
 

At the bottom of this message is a copy of the Florida Winlink Net Check-in reminder sent by the Net Manager each Sunday afternoon.  To check in you simply send a message to W4AKH with your formatted data in the subject line.  Unless there is a special assignment request in the check-in reminder, you need put nothing in the message area of the Winlink message.  I suggest you take it easy on yourself and try Telnet first.  An example of me sending a check-in via telnet follows:
To:  W4AKH
Subject:   FL WL, Jim, Jefferson City, MO, Telnet

Post it to your outbox and then connect via whatever mode you have stated and send it.  Late Tuesday or perhaps Wednesday each week you will receive a Winlink message detailing all the check-ins received from the previous net.  Next Sunday you will receive a reminder message via Winlink and you are now enrolled in the Florida Winlink Net Check-in.  I am hopeful they will also reinstate short homework assignments on the net check in.  Those were requested occasionally and consisted of a simple assignment such as attaching a weather report or ICS-213 to your checking.  It was a great learning tool.  About three months ago, the Net coordinator changed and those stopped.  I think he as been busy building a parsing program to automate the cataloging of each week's check-ins.  As you will see on the Tuesday report, the number of participants is increasing weekly.  There were about 10 operators each week when I started checking in a year ago last week there were 61.
73,  Jim 


***Sample reminder message copy follows ***

I wonder if anyone else would like to practice getting your Winlink capabilities to work from your shack, as opposed to what I tried to get done from your mobile devices at the last SET?
I am thinking of one night we would all get on an appropriate 2M  frequency and play an e-mail chain-letter game. We would be using the Peer-to-Peer feature of Winlink Express. I would send email to A P2P. The email would have instructions as to what to add to the message. A sends that message to B, B sends to C, etc..

The last station in the ring would send the email back to me and we would discuss how the process worked out for each of us. I think I remember that there were about 10 participants in the SET that were going to try Winlink, but only 5 were successful. 

More practice could help improve our capabilities, and from the comfort of our home, we might have a good time. 

What I am asking in this email is how many players do we have? Just email me with in the next week if your are interested. If you need help setting up your station to do Winlink, let us know and some help could be on the way.

Re: Winlink Exercise

Jim,
I think it would be good for us to see the Winlink net information you mentioned.
I wonder if you are able to use our RMS node, K0SI-10 here, and if you have used the Jeff City digipeter, MJEF, to connect to it as well?
Can you use the HF RMS node K0SI also?
Thanks for responding to the first Winlink call for  a peer to peer net. Do you think we can reach each other directly?
Good to hear from you,
Bill N0AXZ
