Yes it is.  Get a copy of PocketAPRS which runs on the PALM and integrates
the THD7 and a GPS for conmpletely foot portable operation.  The THD7
needs no PC or anyting to run GPS and or send/receive APRS messages.  But
to run conventional packet, thenyou need a keyboard/display PC.  ALso the
built in 9600 baud TNC allows *receive only* from the Pacsats with only a
3 element UHF handheld beam...
