Yes, Kenwood made the radios virtually the same so
setup is nearly identical.  And by putting APRS in
band A on the D7 then you can use the all-band
receiver on band B much more flexibly than A.  So
always set band A for APRS.  Then band B can tune
everything.

With only one exception.  If you have to tune in 
the AIRCRAFT AM band, is the only thing that
band A can do that B cannot.  But there are all
kinds of things that B can do that A cannot.  SO
except for the one exception above, it makes
little sense to waste band B on APRS.

And no, there is no speciifc file for the D7 since
they are so similar (thought maybe I should
add that in it..  thanks)
