That's the control codes in the data buffer issue I mentioned.  I know
it happens in KISS and WL2K implemented a change in their application
rather then letting Kenwood know they have a problem - which makes
sense I guess because the D700 can't be upgraded.  I haven't tried (to
change the freq of all the Kenwoods in the world simultaneously via
aprs-is) ... yet!!!


Another D700/D710 issue that nobody has mentioned is the failing
filters in the D710.  I would love to move my mobile D700 into the
shack for a data rig and have a 710 in the car, but I won't buy a D710
unless the seller gives me an extended guarantee on the filters.
There was a blatant design flaw (DC voltage on filters spec'd for no
DC) and Kenwood continues to charge for out of warranty filter
