[aprssig] Help setting up Kenwood D700A

Seems like we see a lot of D700 help requests here.  I'm not saying that 
this isn't a good place for them - we have lots of experts here - but I'm 
curious, does Kenwood provide any technical support directly?  I'd hope so, 
but the only radio manufacturer I can think of that has EVER answered an 
email I sent was Ten-Tec.  They replied promptly and were extraordinarily 
helpful.  No one else even sent so much as an automated reply.
