I've been writing Kenwood about this and other design challenges
with their APRS radios for years.  No real reply beyond a canned
message.

I will not consider (seriously) purchasing a D700 until they
fix one little thing that literally makes the D700 act like
a chirpy CW transmitter and worthy of an OO pink card with
every APRS transmission.  That's such a shame because
in almost every other way it's an incredible radio.  (It's
a simple software fix - they already did it on the D7.)

My suggestions:

A. Write Kenwood
B. Support hardware and software development that's open to
extension and advancement.
