RE: Handheld for Echo and FM Sats?

Another factoid is that 38% of the 11,000 APRS stations
on the air in the world use a  D7 or D700.  Also, while 
mobile, 85% of all APRS   mobiles use the D7/D700 as 
their only source of receiving mobile data.

Its a lot of stuff in that radio...  And when ECHO is enabled
for APRS, it will allow handheld digital satellite communications..
