OK, for someone new to this...
What is a practical way that this can be implemented? The unit i will
have at our FD site is a KPC-3 (v6.0 that supports APRS functions)
driving a Kenwood TM-251. I was looking at Bob document...
and wondering if this kind of format could be used for the FD
object...or is there another way? I see some say to put the FD-<call> in
the MYCALL field...and then put talk-in, other info in the BTEXT field?
Any help appreciated.
