    Greetings Fellow Hams,

    I Just got a Rigblaster plug and play and wanted to test it with some 2m and 70cm winlink transmissions (probably into a digipeater then into a Igate). My issue is I dont know what freq I should be transmitting on to hit the Winlink servers. I plan to send some simple messages to Commercial email addresses. I look forward to sending winlink on HF once the parts for my Long wire antenna arrive.

    Please and thank you for all the advice

    "Commercial email addresses"? Not sure what you mean - you can't conduct any sort of business via ham radio, so if that's the intent, then don't.

    There is no set frequency for WINLINK. WINLINK nodes operate on the frequency their owners designate. You can search for packet WINLINK nodes near you on their web site. https://www.winlink.org/RMSChannels I see several nodes in your area. To find them, click on 'packet' at the top of the map.

    It's what ARRL membership funds.
    It's also one of the reasons there are so many technician licenses.

    It should be noted that while I said the purpose of Winlink was free email for sail boaters, this is incorrect. Sail boat owners now refer to their boat as a "yacht". So Winlink continues to be a way for yacht owners to get free email which is available from pay services.
