I dont see the connection to "kenwood" here.
Most trackers use HT's or mobile HAM rigs  and 
ALL HT's (ok, except Motorolas and other non-
ham rigs) have +600 built in...

Probably be a good idea if you use a commercial 
rig for APRS, to include the 144.99 transmit
channel since it is the receommended APRS alternate
input frequency...  Just an idea.  Bob
