I have a V71, not a 710, but considering the only difference is which
head is attached, I can confirm serial communication is done by the PC
port on the body. Using the commands in Kai's PDF you can change the
memories in addition to setting the VFO and all other settings, which
directly affects what is displayed on the control head.
