[aprssig] RC-710 Cheap!

Hi Lynn,

I got the heads up on Christmas day in between gifts and dinner. I 
thought about it for about 1 minute and then ordered one.

My guess is that they were going fast as most of the stores were showing 
no stock when I looked and mine ended up coming from Portland, OR.

I have a D710 in the SUV and a V71 in the shack. I've missed having the 
D710 inside so this will give me a cheap upgrade.

Best wishes for a happy New Year.

Steve, KB1TCE
