Re: Kenwwod TH-D7 + Arrow = oM

Angel (not on AMSAT-BB) reported using his D7 to monitor ECHO:

Yes, and once they program the STATUS packet from
ECHO to report in APRS format, then anyone with a D7
HT can receive it and it will display on the radio directly!
Thanks for the report!

P.S.  Interesting enough Go-32 was trailing behind ECHO and also heard
squelch open but no decoding. Mmmmm. . . .  if could adapt a Palm with
APRS. . . sound something for next year's Field Day.
