Kenwood goes beyond the limits of what today\'s Amateurs expect from a radio. The new TH-D7E is equipped with a built-in AX.25 TNC for simple packet operation or to be used with a handheld GPS (NMEA-0813 compatible) as a full function APRS(TM) Automatic Packet/Position Reporting System. The TH-D7E is capable of reporting exact position, speed and heading as well as calculation of distance to destination. The TH-D7E can also be used for APRS(TM) messaging to send up to 45 character messages through APRS(TM) or APRS(TM) Internet gateways without the use of a PC. Additional features such as advanced functions and capabilities with the VC-H1 Visual Communicator and HF SkyCommand operation with the Kenwood TS-570 D/S or TS-870S series radios are possible. The new unique jog/cursor key makes navigation through the TH-D7E features a breeze. The TH-D7E now makes DATA communications simple and easy.
