Again, what I had in mind was a 900 Mhz two way system that at it's core
would be an add on to the Winlink system. This makes it a two way
system. I see there are a couple of pager makers that have stepped in
where Motorola is not making pagers anymore. I'll have a chat with a
couple of people in the business and see whats being used. I vision
that every "pager" would simply work as it does on commercial service
with the domain set to winlink.org I don't see a direct way to
interface it to APRS without going through a Winlink interface first.
I see what you mean and I do see one way messages in Winlink that fit
the definition of alowed one way of interest to all participating
