The problem is that the "data" connector (actually TX and RX audio and 
PTT) follows the side selected for mic operation.   If you want the 
external TNC on the band on right side, and almost never switch the mic 
to the left (normal APRS) side, it will work.    

BTW, this is one of the improvements in the D710 - you can lock the 
6-pin mini-DIN to one side regardless of the mic mode.
