    There are much better ways to send emails.
    Being involved in aviation and Marine winlink had a purpose and was a pretty good system 20 years ago. There are much better an effective protocols.

    Which are??
    Also AFAIK Winlink isn't a protocol anyway.

    You just showed everyone you didnt bother to watch, before leaving a ridiculous comment
    Lots of different ways to achieve different goals. This is just one of them.

    Awesome video, as always, Julian. Thanks for doing this.

    At the end, I was just about to ask "why not use a laptop instead of RPi and Galaxy" but you answered it for me. :)

    I am very familiar with the Icom interface, I have the 7300 and 9700. I am thinking of getting the 705. Although I don't do that much outdoor/portable operation right now, the idea of the capability of the radio (including satellite work) is very intriguing. How do you like the 705?

    Thanks for the kindness and the comment. Actually I think it's okay to use a laptop or tabtop, as long as it's either USB or USB C powered. That makes it easy to charge and stay powered up in the field. If you're looking for low current draw, the Raspberry Pi is the king of that castle.
    Regarding the 705, it is an absolutely magnificent radio. Everything you could possibly need is already integrated, so a small go kit to keep it with you all the time is actually quite minimal. For winlink I use the 705 with a Raspberry Pi zero and my mobile phone. It can't get much smaller than that. Anyway, I think Icom has set the bar so high in the realm of portable radios, that everyone will be scrambling to catch up. It's an incredibly pragmatic radio.
    Thanks again for the comment and wishing you a wonderful Christmas.
