Winlink RMS Gateway TIP

In an emergency communications (EmCom) situation connecting to a Amateur HF Winlink RMS Gateway might be your last resort to passing EmCom messages.   Some RMS gateways will not allow you to connect if their internet connection is lost but some others may give you the box below. If the message you are trying to send is from a served agency then you want to CANCEL the connection and try a different RMS gateway. Reason being it might take hours or even days for that message to get forwarded to its destination. Remember Amateur HF is distant (DX) so look for an  RMS  station hundreds of miles away, not the closest one.
