Two years ago at Dayton, I talked to multiple Kenwood reps about issues
like flash-upgradeable D700s and the rapid disappearance of serial ports
on PCs. Response: "Yeah, those are good points. Can you email them to us
for discussion?" I did so.

Last year at Dayton, I talked to multiple Kenwood reps about issues like
flash-upgradeable D700s and the rapid disappearance of serial ports on
PCs (and filled out one of their product feature request and comment
forms). Response: "Yeah, those are good points. Can you email them to us
for discussion?" I did so.

Dayton 2006 is coming in a few months. I plan to swing by the Kenwood
booth again.

(For the record, I own both a TM-D700 and a TH-D7A.)
