Re: disabling the GPS at front panel
- Ah, yes. After logging some raw aprs data I found that the trusty
D700 was merely replying to an ?APRS? query that a local ham sends
out, at "random" intervals no less.
According the chapter 15 of the aprs spec, ?POS? is not a valid query,
and my D700 does not respond to it. However, it does respond to:
which is a directed station position query. In fact, it responds to
most of the queries that seem relevant. So it looks like the folks at
Kenwood have done a good job implementing the complete aprs spec, or
as much of it as made sense given its role and capabilities.
