Winlink operational

Just before my summer holiday I received my TNC-X packet modem from Coastal Chipworks. Previously I made the cable for my Yaesu FT-817 but up until yesterday I didn't had the time for making the data cable for connecting my FT-7800.
So after plugging the cables in I had to struggle with a few com-ports on my PC. Only four serial cables connected but windows keeps saying that the first 13 com-ports are in use!
Windows is still unbelievable strange......

After installing Paclink and overriding the windows settings on the com-ports everything is working now. So today I made my first contact with a RMS packet gateway on UHF. Nice to be able to sent and receive email over the air, even if the local internet should fail.
