Unfortunately because of some financial issues, I'm going to have to 
sell my TS-2000X. I've avoided it and tried to figure some way around it 
but the sad reality is that it's got to go. I was thinking that I'd be 
leaving the satellite game for awhile but then it occured to me that 
maybe I could do something with 2 meter FM.
 I have a Kenwood TM-241 mobile rig and a Yaesu Ft11R handheld. Isn't 
APRS done on just the two meter band? Would it take both radios or just one?
Are their other things I could do like possibly monitoring beacons or 
decoding telemetry and such. I have no TNC but I could use AGWPE with my 
I'd just like something to "scratch the itch" so to speak till I can go 
back to a more fully equipped station.

P.S. If I owe any of you QSL cards, please be patient, I am getting to them!
