Just heard about & read up on the new D-STAR/APRS radio from ICOM.  I'm
wondering if anybody here owns it & how good it is not only for D-STAR but
APRS as well

Reason I ask is because I wanna get into both (I'm only on APRS via my
Android now) BUT don't wanna have to $pend $$$ on more radios than needed
to do it (Hence, no Kenwood or Yaesu :-) )

One specific question however, with the ICOM Radio, does it have integrated
TNC technology built-in or would I need a TNC to use the radio & get on
APRS from home with my PC ??

Comments?

Cheers & 73 :D
