No, no. There are no bugs in The D7, D700, nor D710, nor the separate 
head. They are the perfect execution of how APRS should work. If someone 
comes up with something these radios can not do, it must not be done.

There was also a post that one of the key chips in the radio had become 
unavailable in manufacturing quantities.
