Hams: Consider encouraging new users to try Vmail. When I QSO with a new VARAC user, I ask them if they have tried Vmail. Most say they have not. I then briefly explain it and then send one to them either from my station or from another station. This usually gets their interest peaked. Also I explain that if we leave our rigs running when we are not in the shack, that this is building a robust network. It can be a relaible network especially for ECOM. I am encouraged by the new hams that are trying out VARAC. Be sure to engge with them incourage them. 73 Bret C/ AC0AE

Upon sending a V-mail, the beacon timer stops. The Beacon must be restarted for the timer to begin again. Let me know how I can help, if you need logs ect. Thank you guys for what you are doing! This is the BEST thing to hit ham radio in years! Keep up the GREAT work! 73 Bret C / AC0AE

I have been using VARAC HF for several months and I am blown away at the power it has for our ham community. And the poregresivness of all those who are involved in developing it is nothing short of AMAZING! So why are hams slow to learn about it and adapt it? I have seen very few enthusiastic videos on YouTube promoting it and the many features. One major aspect that I feel is not being realized by hams is the fact that when they are not using their radio for other applications, if they leave their rig running on VARAC HF, they are helping to build a tremendous radio network. Especially with the "Freq Schedule" feature, VARAC offers a powerful communications tool. More so than any other digital mode. I tell many of my ham friends about VARAC and they don't seam to "get it." So what can we do to engage more hams? What is the story we need to tell them to get more involved? 73 Bret C / AC0AE
