Good point. I though the cabling kit came with the RC-710 in
the RC-710 price? I could be completely wrong. I see the
RC-710 going for $199 and the PG-5J regulator/cable kit going
But I thought the only reason there was a separate price for the
PG-5J was because those people who already had the D710 control
head might want to use it portable on a different rig and so
would need to get a separate PG-5J regulator/cable set...
But I guess the RC-D710 display head would not need the outboard
cables and 10 volt power supply when it was used with the
TM-V71, so maybe that is why it is only $199 and then you do
have to get the cable/regulator set for general purpose
connection to other rigs and 12-16volts external.
The $87 cable set contains the 1 amp 10 volt regulator for
operating with mobile voltages from 12 to 16 volts and a
break-out box for connecting to other radio's audio...
Thanks. But you know, this does make a great add-on to DSTAR to
give those mobile operators the full APRS display system...
