First new Winlink RMS in Brazil

Hi All,

Please note there is a new Pactor and WINMOR RMS in Brazil.
The first Winlink land station in South America.
PY4LF.

His CENTER frequencies are:
7.040
10.150
14.113
21.119 MHz

His callsign and these frequencies can be entered manually into Airmail or RMS Express.

You can also update your Pactor and Winmor channel lists via the Internet to have his station show up.

Please test with and support this very important new Winlink RMS for all amateur radio sailors in his area.

Hamsailor.

Excellent connection reports from sailboats in the Mid Atlantic.
He is beaming northeast.

An underutilized station.
Ideal for GRIB files.

Re: First new Winlink RMS in Brazil

PY4LF dropped the 10 MHz frequency due to local noise.

New station times due to local tropical thunderstorms and good propagation are:
18:00 to 23:00 UTC.

He erected a new dipole with rotator for 7,14,21 and 28Mhz. Going on the Yagi 3 el. ( Cushcraft R8) for 14 and 21 MHz.
With traffic in the Northern Atlantic zone, he beams the Yagi there on 14/21 and the dipole for E/W on 7 MHz.
He might switch this configuration around by January when boats come up from Cape Town, South Africa to the Caribbean.
