What's wrong with the standard off-the-shelf Kenwood Memory Config Pgm for the
D710 running on a cheap $60-$80 Windows 8 tablet?
See review of MicroCenter Winbook TW-700 tablet here on my website:
I currently have over a dozen standard Windows ham apps including soundcard
programs running on this device including the programming utilities for the
D700 and TH-D72.
The so-called Kenwood "MCP" (Memory Control Programs) do far more than just
load the memories. they can save and reload all the defaults and current
settings like TNC settings, current data band, the contents of the PMs and
which one is currently active, VFO or memory on at power-up, etc.
Additionally, I have UIview/Precision Mapping, APRSpoint/MapPoint, FLdigi
multimode soundcard pgm, mmSSTV, mmTTY, EasyPal digital SSTV, VOAprop, UZ7HO
Soundmodem soft TNC, Echolink, and the ARCP-2000 Control program for the
TS-2000 running on this device. I.e. pretty much anything that will run on a
standard desktop PC will run on these sub-$100 devices.
