Bill, this is NOT  a correct answer.  Airmail works fine with VHF 1200 baud 
packet.  That is what people run.
You do not need AGW or anything else.

In Airmail:  go to  Tools - Options - Modules  and set up the VHF Packet 
Client   very simple.
It's best you have a full blown TNC.  The TNC types in the D700's dont work 
well I am told.
