Operation without faceplate


Just a quick question.

I intend to have the radio in the trunk of my care solely for APRS tied in to a PI. Question is, can the radio operate without the faceplate? I know i can turn it on and off via the serial port, but i was just curious as there is no reason to have the faceplate in the trunk.

I have no need for the plate up front because i already have 2 radios up there. Just trying to use what i have and not spend money LOL.
