    Passed the tech exam with a 97%, failed the General exam with a 54%. I'm surprised I got that much on General.

    Yes, but I haven't built my data cable yet so it isn't connected to the radio.

    Per the suggestion of KM4ACK, I have the Sabrent sound card. I have 3.5mm TRRS plugs and a 6-pin mini DIN cable I chopped up for my TM-V71A. All parts are on hand, I just need to assemble.

    I'm also thinking about my power source still I'm using a 100AH SLA battery right now since I already own it but considering a LiFePo battery or Li-Ion.

    I *think* this is the one I ordered. You'll need to double check the dimensions though:

    Sorry. Never answered this. When you connect the data cable the 3kw scope will appear


    Now if you want a panadapter you can get an rsp1a and put it in a switch to disconnect when you TX.

    Looking to buy a setup capable of APRS. Is it worth getting the Kenwood 710G over the V71, is it that much more work to make the V71 APRS compatible? After doing so, is the price point comparable between the two anyhow? Do I need a tablet to view APRS data/send messages regardless of which radio I choose? I thought I'd read something about swapping the 710 face onto the V71, is that an economical solution? I am absolutely new to this but I know I want to have APRS functionality and transmit at the same time.

    Piece of cake. It's just time or money. Not much of either I might add
