Packet Radio Resources

The Martin County Amateur Radio Association and Martin County ARES/RACES have adopted Winlink Express (formerly RMS Express) as the primary application for use with our Packet Radio resources.

This page is a central location for information about packet radio in general and about packet radio resources available in Southeast Florida.
