RE: [aprsisce] Kenwood TH-D72a works great!
I don’t know about the D72 but the following was written for the D710, so you might try that and see what happens, I have no idea if it will work

When the 710 is doing all the APRS work, then the GPS-710 will function and I think I will try a NEMA port for APRSIS32 to view all the incoming RF data using same Call and SSID on both machines..
Not an NMEA port, but check the GPS/NMEA checkbox on the 710's RF port configuration.
For APRSIS32 to do all the APRSing, then I will have an external GPS to the mobile PC and then put the 710 into KISS.
Or try the new CONVerse mode port in APRSISCE/32 with the same box checked and tell the 710 to provide NMEA sentences when in normal TNC mode. The only thing APRSISCE/32 won't be able to do in that configuration is digipeat as it can't transmit a used (*) path component.

Subject: [aprsisce] Kenwood TH-D72a works great!
thanks very much for providing this great program! I got my tech and
general licenses a week ago and my TH-D72a yesterday. After some
fiddling with the ports and settings on the radio I was able to set
things up. The radio is set to packet12 TNC mode and APRS-IS uses a KISS
port to read and write to it.
I don't think there's a way to use the built in GPS to beacon the
station's own position while also receiving APRS data from the TNC. I
suppose for mobile situations where the radio is only used as a TNC it's
OK to add a second GPS to the laptop where APRS-IS is running. Time to
dust off a BT GPS mouse I have lying around somewhere. If the station is
stationary then the builtin GPS can be used to set the location
accurately before switching to TNC mode, I suppose.
