FYI.. (from Michael Phelps..)

I'm finding a lot of PNW APRS folks aren't aware that SMSGTE (SMS Gateway) has been gone for almost 2 months. 
As such I have created a new service that provides a bidirectional  SMS gateway for APRS users using the call SMS. It operates the same as SMSGTE, though it doesn't support some features at this time. So no aliases, however they can be input manually upon request for PNW users!

It does require that SMS end users opt-in. Those not opted in will still receive texts from APRS users. 

More details at the link below. Please have all SMS user opt in! As it is a carrier requirement to keep this service running.

The missing link is probably http://theconnectdesk.com/SMS/

W7NWP got one of his rare mentions in Zero Retries today for this news.
