First off, thanks to all contributors for all the great reviews and information on this radio and the VX-8R.
Just received the FTM-350 last evening and your posts have really made getting it up and running a pleasure.
Since I'm a newbie to ham radio, packet and APRS, I really appreciate all your help.
What is the best side of the radio to run APRS? What are your thoughts on benefits/drawbacks to either side setup? Right now I have it running on the left side, but I know each side has different receive capabilities so your input is appreciated.
Secondly, I'm trying to get the radio to interact with AGW Packet Engine and AGW Tracker. I've had sucess with the VX-8R using the soundcard TNC but can't seem to get the correct setting for the packet com port operation from the 350. Again, any help would be greatly appreciated.
p.s. no lockups so far, though I didn't leave it on all night.
