3 WHAT IS COVERED Review of WL2K Basics

4 Antenna Radio Data Interface Ham Computer A typical ham radio digital station is composed of simple components. VIA HAM RADIO How do Hams do that? In order to do , it is necessary to link to a WL2K Radio Mail Server (RMS) station. The Ham computer is equipped with WL2K Client software. RMS stations must have internet connection. RMS links to the WL2K Central Mail Server (CMS.)

5 Antenna Data Interface Ham Computer Where short range (up to 30 miles) communications are possible VHF may be used to provide over Ham Radio. VIA HAM RADIO How do Hams do that? VHF Radio

6 Antenna VHF Radio Data Interface Ham Computer By connecting to the statewide VHF packet network the ham station may be linked to the internet using an existing system. RMS PACKET Gateway WL2K CMS On Internet VIA HAM RADIO How do Hams do that?

7 Antenna VHF Radio Data Interface Ham Computer HF Radio HF Antenna RMS Where the incident is not within VHF range the radio link must be made on High Frequency. Any network station in the world that can be reached may be used. There are more than 50 HF RMS Sites in North America. VIA HAM RADIO How do Hams do that? WL2K CMS On Internet

8 WL2K HF MODES NOW INCLUDE PACTOR 1,2,3 – Firmware-based data modems. VIA HAM RADIO How do Hams do that? More expensive ($700+) SCS PTC units provide P2 (up to 8X P1 speed) and P3 (up to16X P1 speed.) Legacy multimode TNCS (KAM+, PK-232, etc.) support P1. WINMOR – New soundcard-based protocol provides up to 2.5X P1 (500Hz BW) and 10X P1 (1600 Hz BW).

17 WHAT IS COVERED Review of WL2K Basics WL2K Support Infrastructure in Florida EMCOMMs Applications

18 WL2K IS A VALUABLE TOOL FOR EMCOMMS messaging is universal among agencies. Served agencies need quick error-free data transfers. More efficient use of available radio operators. Relieves voice nets for real-time and administrative matters. Minimum training required as most hams know . Non-ham typist may be used for data entry.

19 ALL ARES MEMBERS SHOULD HAVE A WINLINK ACCOUNT If you have internet now - You can have account. No data modem/TNC or radio required. Promotes familiarization with WL2K and training. You can be assigned to an incident WL2K site. You can add TNC/Radio later when desired.

20 WHAT IS COVERED Review of WL2K Basics WL2K Support Infrastructure in Florida EMCOMMs Applications Certification for Deployment with WL2K

21 Hams who want to deploy with WL2K capability outside their home ARES district will be required to be certified. Certification process involves setting up the gear in a tactical setting and sending and receiving one or more messages. The setting could be a driveway, city park, grandmother’s house - anywhere to demonstrate portability of all the gear including antennas. Certification using VHF and/or HF may be accomplished - user’s choice. Certification instructions may be found on the N. FL website.

24 ARES GROUPS INCLUDE WL2K CAPABILITY AS AN EMCOMMS TOOL Establish support for served agencies Include WL2K accounts for agencies. ARES members have and use WL2K accounts. Support local area VHF packet network sites. Support WL2K RMS sites. Support Neighborhood Ham Watch.
