By Connected Mode I more or less mean talking to a Packet BBS. You
need to have a buffer, something that the Alinco and the D700 seem to
have very little of.
You can use the DR135TP as a standalone tracker by plugging a GPS
directly into it and plugging it into a computer long enough to
program the tracker (It'll remember its settings after that). I've
never actually tried it, but it's mentioned in the Alinco manual if I recall.
The DR135TP will work with XASTIR, because that's what we use
here. It also worked fine for me with UI-View (I was working PCSAT
with it at one point). I have no reason in the world why it won't
support APRS+SA, however the DR135TP does not seem to like KISS. It
works momentarily if I recall, but it tends to suffer a seizure and
then it won't work after that. It does however, work fine in
standard connected mode.
For APRS, either the D700 or DR135TP (the P comes with the EJ-41U TNC
accessory built in) will work fine. Neither seem to work very well
for Packet BBS, and 9600 is probably suspect on both last I read too.
Hope this clears that up.
