D-Star APRS with Icom IC-E29D & HM-175GPS mic

Took a little longer to be delivered than the 6-10 days I was quoted, but I blame the postal services, not the seller.

I wanted to use with the DPRS (digital APRS) & it took a bit of research and even emailing a site owner that his site was down to fine tune the settings.

Using a Combination of the links below I was able to fine tune my settings and have posted some images from the RS-92 software.

As I am usually listening to a repeater the GPS Auto TX is off.
