> Not only that, but they have a  WinLINK object as well.

There are no WinLINK objects.  There are Telpac nodes on all the UHF systems 
(446.150 MHz) and they identify using APRS format.

The UHF systems also have APRS digipeater and I-Gate capability.  If the 
site also has a VHF (144.390 MHz) APRS digipeater/I-Gate, then stations that 
transmit on UHF will come out on VHF.

UHF coverage is much better than VHF because of higher gain antennas, less 
congestion and a lower noise floor.  Mobile stations can use much smaller 
antennas and still perform as well, if not better, than VHF systems.  VHF is 
not being abandoned, but additional development in the Lubbock area will 
include UHF.
