  1. Basically your putting the D710G in kiss mode, meaning the model is dumb and APRSIS32 is doing all the work, encode and decode.  The advantage you get with the D710G is that you can actually use the modem in the radio and access it. For example you can do winlink with it, without any other TNC in packet mode on the D710.  You can not access the TNC in the FTM-400 or any Yaesu radios other than to get data out of the radio.

I’m just looking to switch from a Yaesu FTM-400 to a Kenwood TM-D7100GA and looking at the Wiki: “ How can you configure APRSISCE/32 to run in APRS mode without usurping control from the Kenwood TM-D710 radio? Well, you really can't if you expect APRSISCE/32 to ever transmit because on the first transmission, MYCALL will be set which changes the D710's identity until it's next TNC reset. However, if you avoid messaging from APRSISCE/32 (or even receiving a message to which an ack must be sent), the following might work for you.“


This seems to suggest that if one gives up major functionality APRSIS32 can work with a TM-710GA. What’s the upside for accepting this downside? If sure I’m missing something...
