    Kenwood has confirmed the release of a new VHF/UHF mobile APRS rig to be shown at Dayton this year. Here is a copy of the press release:


    Kanagawa, Japan, May 7, 2010
    — Kenwood Corporation, an operating company of the JVC Kenwood Group, is proud to announce the autumn/winter launch of two new Amateur Radio transceivers: the TS-590S and TH-D72.



    144/430MHz Dual Band FM Portable - TH-D72 (tentative naming)

    The APRS® capability found on Kenwood’s TH-D7* and TM-D710 has been upgraded for the TH-D72. Thanks also to the internal GPS unit, APRS operations will be more enjoyable than ever. The TH-D72 also offers EchoLink® memory compatibility and a mini-USB connector for enhanced computer connectivity. This transceiver is sure to make ham radio operations easier and more fun for all.

    * For overseas model/Discontinued model


    Hopefully more info will be coming soon.
