[aprssig] D700 on WX station.

My County Emergency Operations Center has a Peet Bros. Ultimeter 2100 
weather station (standalone), also they have a Kenwood D700.

What I would like to do is connect the wx station to the D700 and have 
that transmitted on side A, (now for the main part for me sending this) on 
side B of the D700 be able to TX & RX to our spotters on 2m.

I do not own or operate a D700 except very rarely.  Can this work or would 
it be better to put a straight 2m rig on the WX station ?

I am not sure yet, but if I dig through the storage closet I might find an 
Alinco DR-135TP.  Would this be a better choice for the WX station ?

Would a PC have to be between either the 2100 and D700 or 2100 and 
DR-135TP ? Or is the 2100 connectable directly ?

If I have to use a straight 2m rig, I can find a KPC plus somewhere.
