    I am looking for confirmation of Winlink settings for the Pactor IIusb modem with the Icom M-802 radio. I am sending the signal from the PC through the modem and through the antenna, but I cannot get gateways to pick up. I suspect there is a setting deep in the Winlink menus I need to change.

    Are you able to receive Pactor transmissions from others, especially the initial call?

    Sometimes I get a message with the distance and direction. Sometimes distance and direction and my own call sign. Every once in a while I get a line of text as if the gateway is starting to pick up. Never do I get the text sent by the gateway identifying the station that precedes the usual exchange.

    I assume you know how to ensure that you are exactly on frequency using the Pactor modem display? What client software are you using - AirMail?

    Winlink has built in settings for the modem and the radio
