If you look at an APRS description for a WinLink gateway, you'll see something like "144.950MHz 1200 R5m Winlink Gateway". I know that means it's a 1200 baud packet station serving as a Winlink Gateway, but what does the R5m mean?

Estimated range (5 miles). I think 5 miles is the default, so it might not be indicative, but it probably indicates that it's a smaller station in someone's backyard.
