APRS with your Alinco DJ-MD5XTG or Anytone AT-D878UVII

How do you send analog APRS with your Alinco or Anytone radio?   This video explains how to configure your radio. 

Please note that while this video focused on the Alinco DJ-MD5XTG, the basics will apply to the Anytone AT-D878UVII as well.  Sweet! 

There are earlier versions of both radios that could not support this feature as noted in the Alinco DJ-MD5XTG teardown as well as on Jason's fantastic page about these radios down in VK land. 

It is worth noting that the latest Anytone AT-D878UVIII supports analog AX.25 APRS reception via an additional circuit board. 

Alinco does not offer this on its latest XTG model, but having packet transmission capability is still great to have.
