That is a complex question.  I think it works like any other TNC.  But it
does not do DAMA for Eurpoe for example.

In APRS mode, it will capture messages and will send and receive them form
the KEYpad with no external attachments.  Just tune to 144.39 anywhere in
the North American COntinent, and if there is an APRS infrastrucutre in
your area, then you can send and receive messages anwhyere else in the
world with no konwoldege of the other person other than their call...
