I have been out of the ham game for some time, just upgraded to technician and looking to get back on the air. I am looking at the VX-8DR and was wondering if anyone has any feed back on it? Also, I seen allot of demos on the web that show how to use the cloning software on the VX-8R, does anyone know if there is a software for the VX-8DR? and lastly, is it even worth looking into the ICOM IC-92AD? Some details, I am in NJ soon to be moving to MD. I am not sure of what infrastructure there is between D-STAR or APRS. Your help on this is greatly appreciated.
