The firmware was uploaded last night, just put 600+ miles on it and seems to
be doing OK. Can't be 100% sure since I was on the interstate all day and
both into and out of digi coverage (not to mention some Wide-N, some WIDE
and some who knows what) but no major failures.

The rumors are correct, but I couldn't confirm them until today: the new
D710 firmware (yet to be uploaded) will support the SmartBeaconing (tm)
algorithm from HamHUD Nichetronix.  I have been playing with the
firmware in my D710 on the way to Dayton, and it's looking pretty good.

Sorry for the late notice--I wasn't anywhere where I could get the 'net
until now.

Congratulations to Kenwood and D710 owners.
