For the TH-D7, TH-D72, TM-D7x0 don't change the UNPROTO settings.
Just set the PATH to ARISS,WIDEn-N where n-N is whatever value you want
in your area.

Using the radio in TNC mode you could change the unproto but i don't see
the point.
ALL and CQ should work but some software doesn't understand this and
those users would not see the message.
Then it's better to send the message to a bulletin group.
