Hi All
         I really do like my Kenwood D700. 
But what I would really like is for Kantronics to come out with a 
dual band Radio with a GPS also built in.

Think of a D700 with all its features and a KPC3 for the built in TNC 
with a GPS to boot.

Only problem is that the price of the radio would probably be out of 
reach for most if not all Hams.

Let us hope we never witness the "Silence Of The Hams"
