[aprssig] WinLink Stations on 144.39

I got a very quick reply from Steve, K4CJX.  He assured me that operation of
Winlink TelPac stations should not be happening on 144.39.  He's going to
put out a reminder on the Winlink reflector to make sure that people know
not to operate on 144.39.  If you are aware of a Winlink TelPac node
operating in your area on 144.39, he asked that you notify him so that he
can address it directly with the node operator.

73!

I just sent a friendly e-mail to K4CJX about this.  He is listed as a
primary contact on the Winlink website.  Hopefully he can help steer Winlink
users away from setting up on 144.39.

On a related note, it sure would be handy to have Winlink node objects
available on APRS just like what is being done for IRLP and Echolink nodes.
I believe this was discussed a while back.  I also mentioned this in my
e-mail to K4CJX for what it is worth.

Imagine arriving in a new area and seeing local IRLP, Echolink, and Winlink
node objects on your APRS map.  Now that is useful!!

I made a disurbing discovery today.  There are 15 registered WinLink nodes
operating on 144.39:

I found this out by accident when searching for a local node and found one
registered on 144.39!!
