I cannot even begin to imagine a worse solution than the SCS PTC.  It is a
closed
design,  it is very expensive,  Pactor-II does absolutely NO checking of the
channel for occupancy before transmitting. I could go on but that ought to
be
enough.  They really must have been desperate to choose this approach.
Starting
from scratch would be better.  If you produced a solution that was half as
efficient of spectrum as Pactor-II (even if it were designed by someone that
knew
anything) and it was open and free, no one will use the SCS PTC.  What
happens to
the emergency channels com's if SCS goes out of business tomorrow?  We need
an
OPEN SOURCE, runs on ANY platform, solution for completely versatility.

........... Is it similar to WinLink 2000? These guys have been working
this hard here in Florida, I worked with it a bit during the storm, it
appeared to be quite impressive. I guess the idea would be to have some-
thing that both of them will interoperate with. I am no lover of Windows
but seems these guys are on to something, even if it is on a OS that is
a house of cards.

This is the link to their site
