Well I got the external TNC so that's no problem.  However if the local
D-STAR repeater has software that allows for APRS-like packets to be sent
via D-PRS, then TXing those packets shouldn't be a problem IF it's
installed properly by the trustee of the repeater, control operator and/or
the technical crew so therefore, I fail to see how "Kerchunking" the
repeater would somehow be frowned upon since it wouldn't be detectable
anyway & would be well within the norm

Let's seperate the wheat from the chaffe a bit here.....

Sounds like *Some* people on here don't know much about D-STAR & how it
operates & probably need to learn (Others OTOH on here DO).  Not knocking
anybody or biting the hands feeding me BUT if you're NOT informed or
educated on D-STAR & how D-STAR radios operate & integrate with APRS,
PLEASE move on.  You're not helping things any.  I'm not educated much on
either BUT am interested in learning before buying my next radio.  Just
saying...... :-)

Cheers & 73 :-)
