You know I have been watching the discussions about the D700 and I find it
odd that there are so many
intelligent ham radio ops out there that someone has not come out with a
software definable radio,
with a working group.

What would be cool is we were removed from the "restraints" of manufacturers
and can dabble.

Oh well one day we will have dsp radios.

Cheers Andy.

apparently.  That doesn't quite fit my idea of "compatible", but it
does make me think of the old joke: How many Microsoft employees does
it take to change a light bulb?  None - they redefine darkness as the
industry standard.

I personally would like to see more effort in actual advancements to
APRS, and less effort keeping everything frozen in time so that we're
backwards compatible with 10 or 20 year old designs.
