Earl, Regardless of your intended use, I'd get the newer firmware.

Finally got my tracker working again - a Phoenix VHF radio failed. 
Fortunately had another in the pile so the fix was quick. In 90+ heat, one 
does not relish long stints out working in the vehicle.

At the house, have a Pico-Packet, IC-245 combo.. two nights ago it heard 
direct (on a mag mount) K0HAM-15, which is 116 air miles away.

>>Yes, if you intend to use it as a stand-alone APRS digipeater.

>>version 9.0 software, are eligible for a free update from the factory."
