I have almost completed installing a Kenwood TH-D700 in my 2002 
Chevy Venture and being a new user I have a few questions:

I thought this radio could receive the aviation band (approx 121.5) 
but the VFO doesn't seem to allow me to select it.  If there a mod 
necessary to reveive outside of the ham bands?

Does any one have a "quick" list of what needs to be done to get 
the APRS mode active, at least for receive.  I still need to get my 
GPS cable wired.

Is there any way to change the power off time to something less 
than three hours?

Sorry for the basic questions, I will be traveling a lot during the this 
weekend and next week and would like to use the radio and don't 
have a lot of time to dig through the books prior to the trip.

Thanks,
