We have HT’s with DStar, APRS, DMR, and all with GPS built-in. I think it is time to have an HT with GoTenna Mesh built-in. We can already pair our phones to the current HT’s so an HT w/ GoTenna Mesh + GPS + BT should not be too much. I mean, if Kenwood could build an HT that supports both APRS and DStar, then anything is possible, right?
You can provide an HT for ham use on 2M/70cm (voice), 33cm (digital) using a tri-band antenna (140/440/900) or a commercial radio under Part 90.613-633 (SG117) PLMR non-border frequencies in 800 and 900MHz for voice, and continue using the current frequencies on Part 15 for digital. The same antenna can be utilized for both voice & digital and can have a GPS either built into the antenna or inside the unit itself.
