It's not a demand ;o) but if this is possible it opens for permanent 
DF-units that can be used for different tasks without reflashing the 
firmware.

The possibility to request data from other units are great.
But for me the possibility to always monitor one channel and that the 
unit automaticly sends data when signal is above a value would be even 
more great.

If other people have som ideas i hope they are posting them as this is 
going to make it much easier for you to plan the "logic" for the device.

I did not see the RX range on this device but is it possible to RX on 
144-171MHz ?

It's easy to make a plugin for the TM-D710 doing a thing like this.
Even if the radio are in APRS mode you can send/receive data using 
software. And with an extra cable you can do the QSY on the other band 
and read the squelch level etc.

I can try this when the format are defined for the trigger functions etc.
