But they don't *display* APRS data (and that's what Bob was talking about ..
radios that you can "see" APRS data on).
Hmmm...let me see the Alinco DR-635T is listed (at Universal Radio) for $350
PLUS another $120 for the TNC = $470
The same company sells the Kenwood D-700a for $520
So the Kenwood is only $50 more than the Alinco .. AND gives you a screen
that let's you SEE, and DO stuff. To me, at least, well worth the extra $50.
