[aprssig] WinLink Stations on 144.39

I think what you might be seeing are OBJECTS and not STATIONS.  I doubt 
there are WinLink Telpac nodes
"operating" on 144.390....or at least in that quantity.

They are valid objects, however.

A typical Winlink object packet will look like:

;DM24UD   *030503z3408.75NW11417.50WaWA6OFT-15,145.550,1200b,WL2K,PARKER, AZ

This tells Mobile APRS users about the Telpac node that is LOCAL to the 
WA6OFT-1 Igate.  It leaves the Igate with a path of WIDE2-1, which allows 
one hop paths in my LOCAL area.
