Email over HF

The SignaLink was the key to getting RMS Express and WINMOR to work last night. I sent a short email message to my gmail account and then received the reply. Transmission was on 40m to a gateway located in Houston.Transmission speed was around 230 bytes per minute. It is slow but it works and demonstrates that email can be exchanged globally without the need for expensive and dedicated packet hardware.
