Current project: Winlink Gateway

CDCA is working with several local groups to get a Winlink infrastructure in Southeast Oregon; Klamath County Emergency Management, CERT, AUXCOMM, Klamath Basin Traffic Net, and the Klamath Basin Amateur Radio Association.

To start with CDCA is building a local packet gateway with our callsign N7CDC as we gather the equipment and develop training for other administrators. The current plan is for three full-time packet gateways, two HF  ham gateways, and one HF SHARES gateway. We are also working on two HF/VHF/UHF portable emergency deployable stations.

UPDATE: 25 MAR 2019

Set up a test station and everything went well. Installed software and set up a station at Sky Lakes Medical Center under our callsign N7CDC-10 until the trustee can get authorization for KD7TNG-10.

Next step is an HF Gateway. This will require some hardware.
