Hello,

I have a Kenwood TM-G707A in good operational condition.  It's mounted in my 4Runner and works great.  I also have a M$ Windoze running on an old HP laptop.  What am I missing to between these two pieces of equipment in order to work APRS? 

Thanks in advance

A TNC. Check out the TNC-X (http://tnc-x.com/) and it's X-Track board (http://tnc-x.com/Xtrack.htm).

Another way of going about it (same thing, TNC) is by using a 'Byonics' 'TT3 or 4' and an APRS program on that computer.  The Byonis thing only does APRS so you don't have to know how to program a TNC (that's not exactly true since the Byonics device is a TNC).  The computer+APRS program allows a much larger 'screen' and makes for easier 'seeing' for us what have 'bad' eyes (good excuse, huh?).
There are a number of ways to 'do' APRS, pick the one easiest and most desirable for you.
