VARA HF Incredible Speed and COVID-19 Fundraiser

I'm an Amateur Radio enthusiast. I love the hobby and experimenting with radios, antennas and software. On my YouTube channel I upload videos on the Icom 7300 and Icom 7610 along with Ham radio software programs. I hope to inspire people to try new things in Amateur Radio.

Rich –
We have recently organized a group of hams to learn/practice/utilize P2P Winlink for ‘grid-down’ messaging, and have standardized on VARA. The group has grown to over 70 members in about two months, and we are becoming active in various SETS. Our experience and methodical testing indicates that the registered version of VARA is about 65 times faster than ARDOP. It’s like magically changing Bytes/minute into Bytes/second.
Keep up the good work!
