Bud, that's an interesting solution - I've not used FL Digi forms capability.
I suppose you could fun FSQ and FLMSG simultaneously.
I'm wondering if the forms capability in FL Digi is compatible with the forms in Winlink Express?

Whatcom county is doing something very interesting to solve these problems
and it works very well on a Rpi with a UDRC controller. We are using Fldigi with
Flmsg running MT-63 2000L on VHF. Flmsg supports the ICS forms. MT-63 sends very
fast with error correction. We also use FSQ. This works for us because all units
only need to communicate with the county EOC and they talk to the rest of the
state. MT-63 allows you to broadcast the message, which means that all stations
copy it at the same time. Each one does not have to make its own connection and
download the message separately. BTW Fldigi runs on all platforms, so it works
with any computer.
At the Red Cross in Bellingham, when we want to send a message with
WinLink, we use a Windows laptop which connects it to the same Rpi and UDRC
using TCP/IP over our local network. Our regular WinLink operator is not a Linux
guy. All we had to do was make a simple change in a menu and everything was the
same as what he has always done.

For EmComm oriented clients, there are a few key functions necessary in

-Tactical Address Support
Outpost, Pat, Paclink (but not
Paclink-Unix) and Winmail Express support tactical addressing.
Express supports Forms.
I'd dearly love to see a client that supports
Forms and Tactical addresses that would run on a Raspberry Pi, such as the new
It has been my experience that nearly every time I fire up my ham radio
ThinkPad, that it wants to download an update or do something other than the
Winlink message I want to send.
