AGWPE är ett gratisprogram för Windows, som är gjort av SV2AGW i Grekland.

AGWPE agerar som en "drivrutin" mot paketradiomodemet (TNC), så att de "nyttiga" programmen inte behöver veta hur modemet fungerar. (Ljudkortet i PCn kan också användas som TNC.)

Exempel på program som kan använda AGWPE:
FRONET, UI-View, UI-View32, Winpack, "RMS Express" för Winlink 2000 (måste använda AGWPE).

APRSLink ?

Det är möjligt att både sända och ta emot epost med en radio som har APRS.


(Dock måste det någonstans i närheten finnas en brygga, iGate, som tillåter meddelanden från APRS-nod = "WLNK-1" på Internet att sändas ut på radio.
Digipeatrar är tillräckligt mellan din egen radio och denna iGate.)
