Our ARES group has a small "digital" faction that is practicing various methods of sending digital traffic (forms, lists, etc.). We mainly use D-Rats (DStar) as we have the local infrastructure. Also FLDigi and just to be familiar, WinLink. We have used this locally, radio only, peer to peer. We were shocked to find these radio only messages appear on the WinLink message database so that observers can monitor content. While we understand why this was done by WinLink (the messages are very difficult to monitor and suspicion is many if not most of the marine mail is actually commercial), the unauthorized uploading of everything in your WinLink Express inbox and outbox may come as a surprise to other hams. It did to me. I posted on the groups.io WinLink page asking about this (when it started, when they told people the program would share your inbox and outbox contents globally,etc) and my post never made it past their group sysop. Form your own opinions of WinLink but this is something I would never use for anything if they feel they can just upload contents from your computer without permission. 73.
