Through the USN cable that runs between the radio and the computer.
It is my understanding that when the D72 is configured to pass the internal GPS data through to the PC, then none of the APRS data comes through, but that understanding could be flawed.

Really? Then how does one explain how I was able to do it yesterday and the day before just fine?
Ok, let me guess. You have an NMEA port configured to talk to the D72 and have an RF Port configured to talk to the SAME COM port? That's a UI-View trick that APRSISCE/32 doesn't support and would cause open errors on one or the other depending on which thread got the port open first.
Tis is the crux of the problem. When I press the Transmit tab, nothing happens. Nothing, nada, a handful of nothing. It just sits there like blob. Even if if I left click on my location on the screen then go to the Lat/long line of my location, click that, I then clicked on "Move ME to this location". Nothing happens, According to ASPRISCE, I am lcated in Montreal, regardless oif reality, or by telling it wherre I should be. ASPSISCE has indicated that it doesn't give a rat's rump where I really am, it is going to put my icon where it wants me to be.
If you have a GPS configured and Enabled, then Transmit does just that, it transmits where the GPS says you are located. If you disable the GPS (or have none configured), then Transmit will ask if you'd like to move to the center.
