I think there's a lot of 3rd party packet types the Kenwood decoders fall down
on. In their defense, writing packet parsers is hard, especially in a low
level language. In my defense, I've spent about $2000 on Kenwood APRS radios
over the years, so I'd REALLY like my money's worth. Please.
I'm working off-list to funnel our concerns to the correct people. I think
WB4APR has a better conduit, but a dual pronged attack can't hurt.
