Will show on 10x10 D7 as:

NoTn R50m
Net - 9PM 

Will show on 10x10x8 D700 as:

NoTn R50m
Net - 9PM 

Will show on 14x14x14 D710 as:

NoTn R50m Net
Wide Coverage

If there is no tone, then I think it will be OK to eliminate
that field and you can move things left to display more maybe..

> and our local club meeting:
> http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/find.cgi?call=VBARC

Will show on the D7 as:

St Andrews

On the D700 as:

St Andrews

On the D710 as:

ndrews Mtg1stT

Because of the longer lines on the D710, we have asked kenwood
to include an auto-wordwrap-on-space in their next version so
that things formatted for the D7 and D700 will also line up on
the D710.  Then this would show as:

Andrews Mtg1st

Great idea!
