We just wrapped up a communications exercise with the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency last week utilizing Winlink RMS Relay Post Office on a MESH system setup onsite. We were able to place messages on the Post Office and retrieve them from multiple stations set up at the exercise site in order to facilitate message flow between our dedicated HF/VHF/UHF stations and the command vehicle. We set up an Area Command structure and relayed messages from 5 sites throughout the state. We automated delivery of the messages as much as possible using the Winlink Post Office feature in RMS Relay set up on our MESH system and the automatic polling features just released in RMS Express 18.104.22.168
As a result of the operations we came up with some improvements, hence RMS Express 22.214.171.124 has now been released. There will be some improvements to RMS Relay coming soon that will help even further.
We also utilized a Post Office that was setup at an external site on our area MESH system.
There will be a full write-up coming soon that will describe the full operations.
