Installing PAT Winlink client on MacOS

Quick notes:

  • download the .pkg from and run it
  • run ‘pat configure’ set your callsign, password and gridsquare
  • run ‘pat http’
  • open localhost:8080 in your browser

At this point you can connect using the telnet option to send and receive over the internet.

Will look at using Direwolf for access via radio later.

  1. Just installed Pat Winlink. How do I enable it to run in the background on Mac OS startup so I don’t have to manually start it from the Terminal?
