Hi Bob!

I was not aware of this. Thanks!  For me with just my TH-D72A, I'm still
partial to the APRS messages. Then I have a copy of what I sent and
received in the HT, without hoping that gateway stations have received
all of the packets and forwarded them to ariss.net. The APRS status
packets will be overwritten with successive packets received from the
other station(s), although if I see what I want to see I can still call it
a QSO.
