I just realized you are referring to the AT-D878 II Plus.  I was talking about 
the earlier non-Plus version. The manual for the earlier version makes no 
mention of APRS, particularly on receive.  Some web sites (as I cited 
previously) say it can be made to transmit analog FM APRS beacons.

Apparently, the Plus version CAN both send and receive APRS posits, although a 
lot of users are finding it difficult to set up.   Apparently, you must have 
the configuration/setup software for the PC, and the oddball connecting cable 
to do it.      I don't know if it has any messaging capability ala a Kenwood 
APRS handheld.
