I should have been more clear.. the reason why it was not popular is
because, if you use it with any radio besides the TM-V71, you have to buy
the optional cabling kit for close to $100.  By the time you added that to
the cost of the RC-D710, you may as well spend the extra few bucks and buy
the full TM-D710.  That is why I think it has not been popular.
