When the complete protocol is figured out and documented, let me
know. I'll see about adding it. Another possibility would be to
write a shim program that listened to the D700 on a serial port and
produced APRS packets on a PTY port that Xastir could connect to.
Then Xastir itself wouldn't have to change at all to receive and
decode the data.
