Useful Frequencies



VE7GDH is running Winlink Express (formerly RMS Express) P2P on 144.970 MHz. Three inter-connected packet nodes were installed in our repeater hut by VARPA some decades ago, but they were handed over to SSARS in early 2015. We gladly took over ownership because we didn't want to see them disappear. They are valuable part of the communications infrastructure for the whole Vancouver / Nanaimo / Victoria area. With that said, two of them are "down for maintenance" right now.

Winlink Express can be downloaded from It can be used at 1200 bps and 9600 bps on VHF/UHF and can also use WINMOR with a sound card type of interface such as the SignaLink USB for WINMOR on HF and even a PACTOR modem.
