According to Wikipedia, Winlink, or formally, Winlink Global Radio Email®, also known as the Winlink 2000 Network, is a worldwide radio messaging system that uses amateur-band radio frequencies and government frequencies to provide radio interconnection services that include email with attachments, position reporting, weather bulletins, emergency and relief communications, and message relay.

Oregon OEM prefers to receive messages by Winlink whenever possible because of improved accuracy of written messages over spoken messages. However, they will accept them any way that they come.
