Re: Kenwood Data Radio

Hi Bob,

I understand the kenwood ht that has the built in tnc can't do crossband for
pacsats. But can it do everything else (ie: aprs, ax.25, etc) here on earth.
I was thinking about checking into picking one up, but I don't want it if I
can't do everything I want too. Also does it have a built in mail box so
people can leave me messages while it's hanging on my belt? Also can I
access those messages if it does have a mailbox from the keypad without a
computer connected? Thanks a million... 73...
