On the Kenwood while displaying the desired object:
1) Press band select button (volume control)
2) Press TUNE (assuming the data band is in VFO)
Note, if the UHF APRS frequency object also is a shift to 9600 baud, then
this will require an entirely new TNC setting and can only be done in a
But again, the possible factor of two improvement by doing APRS data at 9600
baud is not worth this additional hassle maybe.

Is there a way to get it to QSY on the "data" band (where the TNC is
configured)? As far as I can tell, the QSY function always targets the
non-data band, which is opposite of what you want to advertise an APRS
channel like you describe.
