I'm usually the one fixing subjects for other hijacked threads -
sorry I didn't here - I'll blame the flu!  ;-(

I've had my DR-135 sitting here as a digipeater with a rarely
used 2/440 rig next to it. I decided that the 2/440 can handle
dual-duty and the DR-135 can be sold.

I'd like to also be able to experiment with text messages via
APRS, the V7A can do 9600 on 440, and I'm testing mobilinkd.com
with my Android phone & handheld 2/440 - so a working base APRS
rig is handy for that as well.

I'm told that others use a V7A for APRS without trouble.

BTW: Curiously, the V7A display shows APRS when connected to
the Tracker 3/OT3m.
