But they don't *display* APRS data (and that's what Bob was talking about .. 
radios that you can "see" APRS data on).

Hmmm...let me see the Alinco DR-635T is listed (at Universal Radio) for $350 
PLUS another $120 for the TNC = $470

The same company sells the Kenwood D-700a for $520

So the Kenwood is only $50 more than the Alinco .. AND gives you a screen 
that let's you SEE, and DO stuff. To me, at least, well worth the extra $50.
