When you have a group of well meaning Hams there are technical problems 
and people problems. In my part of the world the people problems are 
toughest. Hams, often for good reasons, are often really reluctant to 
spend much, if any money. The bottom line is with some cajoling you 
might be able to get a new volunteer to to buy an inexpensive KISS mode 
TNC to use with a radio they already have but the majority won't jump in 
head first with a special radio/display.

I'd ideally like something that will use a notebook/netbook with a KISS 
mode TNC and an external radio. It sounds like the APRSISCE that Lynn 
mentioned may be a contender.
