10 10 The SailMail Association is a non-profit association of yacht owners that operates and maintains a network of private coast stations in the Maritime Mobile Radio Service. The Association provides radioprinter (e.g. Internet ) communications for its members on a cooperative basis, in order to meet the private business and operational needs of the members' yachts. The SailMail Association provides worldwide coverage through the operation of 16 stations in North America, Hawaii, Australia, Southeast Asia, South Africa and Europe. Sailmail uses the same Pactor technology as the ham radio system, and supports Pactor-1, Pactor-2 and Pactor-3 on all frequencies at all stations. Airmail can be configured for either ham or Sailmail operation, or both. With the addition of a Sailmail configuration file, the same copy of Airmail can provide service for both the ham radio and Sailmail systems. This allows Sailmail to be used for business-related messages which are not permitted on the ham bands, as well in countries where ham radio third-party traffic is not permitted. Winlink2000 (WL2K) is a new ham-radio MBO system introduced in late 1999 by Hans Kessler N8PGR, Vic Poor W5SMM, Rick Meuthing KN6KB and Steve Waterman K4CJX. WL2K is fully integrated with the Internet, and uses Internet message forwarding to make user messages available at any station which they normally connect with. The Winlink-2000 system provides worldwide coverage through the operation of 49 stations in North America, Hawaii, Australia, Southeast Asia, South Africa and Europe. Airmail software operates as a "smart client" for accessing both WL2K and Sailmail networks. Sailmail/Winlink2000/Airmail Introduction

17 17 Operating Procedure for Airmail Terminal Program (HF Radio) Posting message using HF Terminal program 1.Build message and Post in Airmail Message Index (outbox) 2.Turn on HF Radio and modem 3.Open the Airmail Propagation program (View+Propagation) from Airmail Message Index window to determine what station/PMBO and frequency to connect to 4.Open Airmail HF Terminal program (Module+HF Terminal) from Airmail Message Index window and select station/PMBO and frequency 5.Listen to make sure frequency is clear, use headphones if engine is running 6.If frequency is clear hit green button in Terminal Program to send message 7.If transmit speed is dog slow (< 600 bps) give up and try either another frequency, another station or another time bps to 3200 bps are good numbers to see. This is VERY important, dont beat a dead horse - try later when conditions improve 8.Send message Receiving message using HF Terminal program 1.Repeat steps 2 through 6 above 2.If receive speed is dog slow give up and try either another frequency, another station or another time 3.Receive message into Airmail Message Index (Inbox)

18 18 via Airmail Terminal Program (Sailmail & Winlink 2000 users) Terminal program within Airmail sending an through the HF radio speed sending message

19 19 Operating Procedure for Airmail Telnet Client (Sailmail & Winlink 2000 users via Internet) Posting message using Telnet Client program 1.Build message and Post in Airmail Message Index (outbox) 2.Open Airmail Telnet Module (Module+Telnet Client) from Airmail Message Index window and choose Telnet Client Station/PMBO from pull-down list 3.Hit green button to send message Receiving message using Telnet Client program 1.Open Airmail Telnet Module and choose Telnet Client Station/PMBO from pull-down list 2.Hit green button to receive message The Airmail Telnet Client can be used for sending/receiving , receiving weather bulletins, receiving GRIB files, sending/receiving position reports. In other words, everything you can do in Airmail Terminal Client at 4,800 bps max can be done through Telnet Client at Internet speeds. We often cruise around an anchorage looking for an open WiFi connection to use

20 20 via Airmail Telnet Client (Sailmail & Winlink 2000 users) Note: When using Winlink 2000 Telnet Client, the rules of Amateur Radio do not apply since you are not going out over the HF airways. Business type transactions are allowed but only in Telnet receiving message

21 21 Example of Sending & Receiving We will off for the text version of this web page so we know what to expect when we land in Opua, NZ. Airmail Telnet Client will be used but Airmail Terminal program would have also worked. The following steps apply for any sent & received.

26 26 Position Reporting Lets folks at home share in your adventures. Gives them a map to track your progress Do let folks at home know that the lack of an updated position should not be a cause for alarm Remember that most position reports are removed if track is not kept current (more on alternatives later) Position reports allow you to see other cruisers in your area Dont report if near sensitive areas like Somalia Coast, Gulf of Aden, Red Sea, Venezuela etc. Dont report if you dont want people to know where you are (running from the Law, bill collectors, mother-in-law etc.)

27 27 Lets find VA2BIC (Claude Gagnon & Carmen on SY-CORAIL IV) The Position Reporter web page within the Winlink 2000 system can be found here:

28 28 The Winlink 2000 Position Reporter (Ham users only, lookup VA2BIC in first column on left) There are over 6000 Winlink 2000 members and at any one time ~300 to 400 are sending in daily/weekly position reports. If the latest position report entered is over 7 days old, the call sign will not show up on the APRS look-up list until a new position report is entered. Click View position reports for VA2BIC

29 29 View All Position Reports for VA2BIC (Click Satellite + Hybrid)

30 30 View Position Report Detail (green positions are history, blue position indicates latest position)

31 31 APRS Position Reporter (Ham users only) Enter VA2BIC in Station Call Letters box

32 32 APRS Position Reporter (continued) Only latest position is shown with no detail available Just like the Winlink 2000 Position Reporter, the latest position has to be no older that 7 days in order for APRS call sign lookup to work

33 33 Yotreps Position Reporter (Ham and Marine call-sign Users. Click Yotreps at bottom of main Position Reporter web page) Data entry is through Airmail position report form. Hams can also call into Pacific Seafarer Net (14.300Mhz USB at 03:25 UTC ) and have their data entered into the Yotreps system. Yotreps mainly wants you to use their system when you are sailing offshore (coastal sailing reports allowed without weather detail) due to their tie into the Pacific Seafarer Net and various Search & Rescue (SAR) activities.

34 34 Yotreps Position Report Data Entry Sailmail users enter position report detail using the Airmail (Sailmail version) position report form. Hitting Send Now button will enter position report in the Yotreps database Ham users enter position report detail using the Airmail (Winlink 2000 version) position report form. Hitting Send Now button will enter position report in APRS database, check Copy to Yotreps box to also enter position report in the Yotreps database

35 35 Look up VA2BIC in Yotreps ID column and click on Position Track Yotreps ID will be either a Ham call sign or Marine call sign. Yotreps ID lookup can find positions that were entered anywhere from current time up to 1 year. The Yotreps reporting boats lookup web page can be found here:

36 36 View VA2BIC Position Track and Detail A quicker way to drill down to the VA2BIC position reports is using the direct link:

37 37 Position Reporter from the European Maritime Mobile Service Network or Intermar (Ham users only, Click Position Reporter at bottom of main Winlink Position Reporter web page) Available for use worldwide, free to all Ham users. Uses positions from APRS Database posted via Winlink Call sign lookup can find positions that were entered anywhere from the present time up to 1 year past

38 38 From Initial Screen choose Map Window button

39 39 Enter VA2BIC call sign in Yachtfinder box and hit Yachtfinder button

40 40 Hit YachtTracker link to show all position reports on large map Zoom in by holding down left mouse button and dragging a rectangle with your mouse Latest position has red boat icon

41 41 Nice Position Report Detail! A quicker way to drill down to the VA2BIC position reports is using the direct link::

42 42 But Wait theres More! (Hit VA2BIC Callsign link) You can show in one place the boat & crew detail, position report locations and detail data, multiple maps, web page link and link. If you register (free) with Intermar they will provide a nice interface to all your data

43 43 Source: Weather GRIB (gridded binary) File Intro GRIB is a code form used by operational meteorological centers for storing and exchanging meteorological charts and other patterns of wind, sea state, temperature etc. The information is put into a compressed digital, binary format that enables high speed transmission and reception. It is useful to sailors for the efficient reception of charted information using GSM, GPRS, Satellite phones or HF radio to Internet link. GRIB files augment the information one gets from Weather Fax reports. Most common GRIB data shown is surface wind speed & direction, atmospheric pressure and surface temperature. What is GRIB and why does it provide so much for so little? Where does the data come from and what is it? A major source is the US NWS (Numerical Weather Prediction) model, the GFS (Global Forecasting System) which calculates how the weather is expected to develop, For this purpose it defines the atmosphere on a three dimensional grid of points. The lowest level of this model is at about 20 meters above ground (or sea level). This is at a height where the pressure is about 3 hPa (mb) lower than at the surface of the earth. From the forecast wind at this level and using algorithms embodying surface roughness and stability, the NWS derives a forecast at 10 meters. The forecast winds are also used to drive a wave model known as the MMAB Operational Wave Model (aka wwave3). NWS wind data in GRIB format are available, free, from at least two sources. Saildocs provide the wind at the 10 meter height above sea (or ground) level. Global Marine Networks (GMN) provides wind data from the output of wwave3.

44 44 Using Saildocs GRIB files (Sailmail & Winlink 2000 users) Drag mouse in grid area to choose area for GRIB file in Airmail Catalog (Window+Catalogs+Saildocs), set GRIB Parameters and Request (dont use Subscribe at Sea)

76 76 Installation (Hardware Needed)

77 77 A Professional Installation Generally Includes: 1.Interface the radio to the HF-modem in the technically "best" fashion. If there is an "accessory" jack available on the radio that includes the necessary signals, it should ALWAYS be used. The use of the "Mic" jack should be avoided. A HF-modem to SSB cable should be provided that has shields connected on both ends and that has ferrites installed on both ends. 2.If the radio is capable of remote control (Icom M710, Icom M700pro, Icom M802, Icom M710RT, SGC SG-2000, SEA-235), provide the remote control cable. If necessary for the PTC-IIe or PTC-IIex, provide and install a USB- serial adapter. If necessary for the Icom M700pro, provide the CI-V or Icom OPC-478 level shifter for the pin jack. See details in the Application Notes. 3.Update the firmware in the SCS PTC modem to the latest version. Upgrade the modem to include an electronic serial number (ESN) if necessary (old PTC-II and old PTC-IIe modems only). 4.Install ferrites at both ends of all cables including the RS232 cable between the HF-modem and the PC, the remote control wire to the radio, the audio/PTT cable between the HF-modem and the radio, and the tuner control wire. Install a Line Isolator (next to the tuner) in the coax from radio to tuner (for details see the SailMail Primer). 5.Check and if necessary improve the ground system and the ground connection to the tuner. (Do not compromise on this item.) 6.Check and if necessary improve the routing of the antenna wire from the tuner to the backstay. Make sure that the antenna wire has stand-offs supporting it at least 2 inches from any grounded wires or stanchions. 7.Adjust the audio modulation levels on the modem using a directional power meter. See the application note in the SailMail Primer on level setting for details. 8.Evaluate the system for RF self-modulation problems. 9.Evaluate the boat's other equipment (inverters, motors etc) for interference with the SSB. Either install filters or inform the owner of what gear needs to be shut off before using SailMail (probably inverters). 10.If the radio can not be remote controlled, then program the radio with the SailMail frequencies, including the appropriate mode. 11.Provide a printed copy of the latest SailMail Primer, T&C's, and the SailMail FCC licenses. 12.Provide a backup copy of the AirMail download from the SailMail website download page, on floppy disks. 13.Test the system and demonstrate the use of the system to the customer.
