Alaska hosts several WINLINK systems.  Winlink 2000 (WL2K) is a worldwide system of volunteer resources supporting e-mail by radio, with non-commercial links to internet e-mail. These resources come from Amateur Radio, the Military Auxiliary Radio Systems (MARS), and other volunteer organizations. The system provides valuable service to emergency communicators, and to licensed radio operators without access to the internet.

AARC and MARA also operates on APRS (Automated Packet Reporting System) and supports
APRS as a local APRS I-GATE in the South Central Alaska Region.
APRS Beacon operates on 144.390 MHz.

Also in the immediate area are I-Gates at KL7AIR-10 on Elmendorf AFB and KL5E-10 in Eagle River and KL7JFT-1 in MATSU (Bushmaster Ops). An I-Gate relays APRS position data to the various websites like APRS.FI or FINDU.COM.
You can also send short ACSII messages over APRS.
Almost every APRS Client system digi-peats position data.
