So, on a Kenwood TH-D74 it would be Menu, APRS, Basic Settings, Status Text, Enter (use up/dn to pick the one you want first), then the Down arrow to move from Rate to the Text, and Enter to edit. Hit Enter to finish the editing, then Menu to clear all the way out.
I presume you'd want a Tx Rate of 1/1, in order to improve your chances :). Default is 1/4.

To answer Greg's question, the first press is Menu, Select APRS, Select status, Select number, Select Rate, begin editing. But all of those are already in line since the last time it was used, so it is just 4 rapid presses of the SEL (ok) key. But then you have to manually enter the other persons call (while remembering it).
