Lemme see... it doesn't do SmartBeaconing. Not a factor for stand-alone use,
but the small buffer is sometimes a big problem in KISS mode. Then there's
the male DB-9 (DE-9) connector on it. I wouldn't turn down a D700 if you
gave me one, but see the HamHUD for improvements. I'm sure the D710A
will be a step up from the D700, but I'm also sure it will leave room for
improvement too!

PS - I assume you meant to send your note to the APRS SIG and not direct to
me, so I posted my reply there.
