The linux program fldigi is a multi-mode HF soundcard digital application 
that supports a wide variety of soundcard digital modes.

The companion program flarq is an adjunct of fldigi that adds ARQ connection 
management to fldigi and allows for sending of emails, text, and binary files.

flarq add ARQ capability to any of the modes fldigi supports, which include 
(from the website):
CW  	 	 	 	 	 	 	
DominoEX 4 	DominoEX 5 	DominoEX 8 	DominoEX 11 	DominoEX 16 	DominoEX 22 		
Feld-Hell 	FSK-Hell 	FSK-Hell 105 					
MFSK-8 	MFSK-16 	MFSK-16 pix 					
PSK-31 	QPSK-31 	PSK-63 	QPSK-63 	PSK-125 	QPSK-125 	PSK-250 	QPSK-250
OLIVIA 	various tones and bandwidth 		
RTTY 	various Baud Rates, Shifts, Nbr of data bits, etc. 		
Throb-1 	Throb-2 	Throb-4 	ThrobX-1 	ThrobX-2 	ThrobX-4


This seems to me to be an excellent start on reliable message and data 
passing using the best mode for the time/frequency/rig.
