Hi John,

Thanks, I know about WinLink, or of it, and after browseing around on 
the WinLink page, I would prefer the small one liner APRS/EMAIL we had.. 
A lot less confusing, no software, and a lot less configurations! :-)  I 
am sure WinLink is doing a great job for folks who have taken the time 
to set it all up..
