Starting in 2018, the Oregon ARES Digital Network website will be changing its focus from Winlink Express information and training to AREDN (Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network) information and training.
Now that the official Oregon ARES Winlink Express forms are a physical part of the software, it is no longer necessary to separately download and install them. The forms have also been simplified to make them easier to fill out for new users. We will most likely do and updated page on the current forms and any explanation needed to use them, however the intent of this site will be to assist with the expansion of the next-generation data over amateur radio.
You can get the idea of the type of information that will be expanded upon by looking at the Washington County ARES High-Speed Multimedia page and we look forward to you coming back soon to learn all about AREDN and mesh networking!
The Oregon ARES Digital Network is a statewide amateur radio system designed for emergency communications.
