How decipher APRS traffic? KJ6BQM on 16/7/18
I got a new Kenwood th-72a so I could work APRS, but I don't understand all the terms or the traffic that I'm seeing. Is there some place I can go to find out what all; these terms and jargon mean?

I'm up for both, but I have trouble copying more than 8 wpm. Whereas , I can broadcast "cq fd w6son" every 15 seconds on ft8. So we will see how that works compared to PSK-31 or CW. I'm going to pow-wow with the rest of the club.

I am having boo coo headaches getting my kantronics kpc3+ to work. Is it possible to use my mobilinkd as a KISS modem? I tried it with outpost message manager, but the program can't see bluetooth as a com port.

Any ideas?

I can't see anything in the regs that forbid ft8 (or jt65, etc,) from field contacts.

Since you can modify the msg. macros to generate a script, it would be like free ice cream. Is it legal?
Ham radio repair? KJ6BQM on 23/5/18
I bought a Chinese Xiegu 108g QRP rig. Worked great for about six times. Now it powers up OK and the display stays on, but the signal drops out intermittently. I haven't gotten any response from "xiegu Technologies" about getting it serviced.

Is there anywhere I can send this for general troubleshooting & repair? I am a disabled vet with a gimp hand or I would take it on myself.

It's a $500 radio and I'm willing to spend money to get it running right

thanks,
