Well, first of all, with the TMD710, you want to use STATUS 5,
because that is the one which automatically inserts your voice
channel operating frequency into your transmitted position
packets. That way, as you drive, eveyone can see how to contact
you. I usually add the comment text "& V-alert." so they can
see I am also listening on 144.39 with CTCSS 100.
As to the CUSTOM comments, all that means is that if you set
CUSTOM 3 then everyone will see that you set CUSTOM 3. But it
only has meaning to anyone that you have previously told them
what to interpret CUSTOM 3 to mean. That is all.
Hope that helps.
