    Hi Guys,

    Please use the SA Maritime Mobile Net for position reports, weather, general interest, etc. Their website/blog is here: http://www.sammnet.com

    There are also several Winlink HF RMS’s in Southern Africa and Mauritius for your free usage. Please update your RMS Express or Airmail channel lists to see these stations show up on the software. They are: ZS1RS, ZS5BG, V51PJ, C91PM and 3B8DU. RMS Express can now also access Winlink email via IridiumGO satellite communicator.

    Best 73, Bernard KC9SGV / ZS4BDK Chicago.
