Looks about the size and shape of a D700.  They did not have the
APRS control head with it... Just a fuzzy picture that looked
similar to a fuzzy D700 control head.  They were passing out
questionares asking how people used APRS and what features they
would like to see in a new radio...  The reason for the fuzzy
picture is because it does not  yet exist I guess...

That's about  it.
