Yes, time will tell what actual APRS features it has. Even without any 
APRS features at all, it looks more appealing than the VX-7R just for 
general use. It's a bit smaller than the 7R and puts out 5W FM on 
50/144/440 MHz and 1.5W on 222 MHz. Hopefully it's good at APRS as well. 
It's got my attention, but I'm waiting for details. Maybe it will be on 
display at Dayton!
