[aprssig] D710s are coming to VA

Evening,

I was trying to get answers to those very questions at the Kenwood  
stand in Huntsville last weekend, but they weren't really saying, as  
there's supposed to be a rather big announcement in the next week or  
so (at least thats what they were saying).  I stayed pestering for a  
while and I 'think' the answer is that yes it will, but I couldn't  
get a definite "Yes" out of anyone, all being very cagey.

I tried taking pictures of the D700 and D710 side by side, but for  
some reason I couldn't get the camera to focus properly so I don't  
have as many as I hoped.  I have a few here http://

Along with other shots in and around Huntsville.

I got quite a few repeater objects on RF while I was there, just  
never got a chance to use the HT for voice.

Regards
