Winklink for the Society Islabnds

Currently there is a "black hole" of Winlink coverage for boats cruising in the Central Pacific. This is both a safety and convenience concern. It is frequently difficult for boats to connect to the Winlink network and download weather information and email.

I have created a "Kickstarter" project at The purpose is to raise the necessary funds to build a Winlink station on Nuju-Hiva, Marquesas, French Polynesia. This will greatly expand the Winlink coverage area..

Please take a look at the link and if possible support our effort. I would also appreciate reposting this message in as many marine oriented web sites as possible.

Fair winds and following seas :)
