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.
