A new Ham has questions about APRS. I bought this neat new Radio and was wondering a few things about setting up the APRS features of the radio. I have a Yaesu FTM-350 and the APRS manual is bigger than the operating manual for the regular features of the radio. Since I am new I would like some help identifing some of the settings I need to adjust to work the radio correctly. First things first what Baud rate for the APRS function should I use 1200 or 9600?
Next question what baud rate should I use for Data?
I think the Frequency for APRS operation is 144.390 but are there any other special settings to go along with this frequency?
On the APRS frequency is there a positve or negative offset? Is there a PL tone required? Is This a Simplex frequency?
More Questions to come.
