      Actually, if you scroll to the bottom, they were responding to my
      one-liner about the D7. They've got it straight for what they were
      answering. I think I've eliminated the D7 idea anyway as I really need
      a true mobile, not another HT.

      > Lynn, someone mentioned Bigger Buffers..... I think that the issue we had working with the TH-D7A and Bluetooth dropping the connection is such here. Bluetooth works great except when sending APRS messages. And I think the Buffer overflows and causes the problem. Maybe Aprisce can gave away to control this.
