comment 3G Radio Always on When Screen On?
This is what it's probably supposed to do. However, like I said, there is a huge difference between having airplane mode on vs. off. That rules out the processor and screen battery drain.

comment Is there a way to enable WiFi-tethering without root access?
Which is why I commented... The questioner asked for a wifi tethering solution. Easy Tether is a USB only tether solution. Hints the problem with this answer. I'm confused

comment Why do certain apps run even when I don't use them?
It's not possible with the baked in carrier apps.

Pretty good explanation. But a desktop system, at least all major ones, will take inactive applications, or even parts of applications, out of RAM and page them out to disk.

+1 I will definitely try this. I don't use JD though, just the plotter. And I think I have my terminology wrong. It seems I should have been saying APN instead of 3G radio.

But it is off when the screen is off (yet of course it still receives voice calls, SMS, and syncs). When the screen is off, the radio only turns on once every half an hour or so for approximately 1 minute. I have carefully set up syncing so that it only syncs at most once an hour.
