That was for the simple reason that I have never had the chance to use a 
TH-D7.  I actually considered it instead of the VX-8GR for my recent 
project, but I was unable to find one used at a competitive price, and 
the lack of a built-in GPS was also an issue.

There are a lot of people around here that have mobile APRS setups, but 
very few that have APRS-capable HTs.  (This may be due to the low 
population density in Kansas, and thus also the low digipeater density.)
