I've got an 8800 ready to go in.
I'll prolly put in the 8800 I got from Dave. But my Vx 8GR has all that cool APRS stuff in it. When we were out in WY Kurt and I were texting to eachother and could see our relative distance apart.
I could be convinced to go digital as I'm always the the guy running late and needing to hook up with the rest of the group. That can be accomplished through APRS, too.
I'm bummed it's all proprietary from Kenwood or Yaesu, etc.
