This is down...   Anybody hear how Keith is doing?

This I'll try tonight after work.  I believe there are other folks
running Pete email program with different addresses.   (It would be
great it somebody would use the simple address of "EM" or maybe "EM1..
EM2..etc"   Every character saved helps.

> - APRSlink on WLNK-1: Send to "WLNK-1" using SP command

This is different then the one-line SMS system and is similar to the
NTS functionality in APRSDOS.  See full details at:


Note that the SP commands in winlink are for connected packet
applications and not APRSLINK.
