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 
amateurs.
