Per the specs the WINLINK station, nobody even knows for sure it is 
actualy from winlink org, should stop transmitting the object untill it 
gets updated with new information.
Because the WINLINK station is connected to the APRS-IS it should not 
even matter if it is transmitted on the aprs channel or APRS-IS.
Apperatly the WINLINK station does not follow the specs or it does not 
listen, maybe disconnects between transmitting the objects, who knows, 
we don't even know who to contact to get the wrong info (wrong software 
info in this case) corrected. We do know that the right info is on the 
winlink.org site so it is not a configuration error.
