Yes. You can find the command reference here:
http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/TM-D710_TM-V71/files/TM-V71%20and%20TM-D710%20Commands%20

I think you will need to subscribe to see that, but that is simple.

If I'm reading it right, the command to read the A-band VFO is "FO 0"
and B-band is "FO 1". It describes how to set it as well. After
reading it, it returns the syntax required to write back the same
value, so it should be obvious how to modify it to change frequency
(the other values like shift and tone are less human readable :)
