.Not familiar with the 600 series but the earlier one doesn't have
APRS. It does have a TNC built-in (actually the same Tasco
TNC-on-a-chip as the Kenwoods), but no APRS-specific firmware or display
capability. In standalone mode (no PC attached to the serial port),
the Alinco is basically an NMEA dumb tracker.
