[aprssig] Kenwood Status - Thinking about TH-D7AG purchase

That's kind of what got me wondering.  He did say that Kenwood also owes him 
some money, so I was not sure if that perhaps tainted his view.  But they 
seem to be in shorter supply, and some places don't even list them anymore.

He has a lot of Icom gear, and is setting up a D-Star repeater.  I know you 
can do something similar to APRS via their system, but APRS works really 
well around here.  I have also heard that the Icom system won't do their 
APRS simplex (has to go through a D-Star repeater), but I just called him 
and he said it does wok simplex.

I'd like our radios to be able to give bearing and distance when we hook up 
GPS units.  I have one with a cable all ready to go to give to her (a 
Lowrance iFinder), and there are digipeaters near all of the areas she tends 
to go.  I have the D700A in the Jeep and it works from almost everywhere.

I was hoping maybe Bob (WB4APR) is familiar with the situation at Kenwood...

BTW- the Jeep page for those that have asked is at
