I have no idea what year the D700A first came out, all I know is that I purchased mine approx 12 years ago from The Ham Store and had it shipped to the UK as a Grey import. In that time, never had a problem or anything to complain about. Still in use today, although not as often as it used to be, everything works and microphone cable still in good condition.
A great purchase for me, my first New mobile radio, and one of the best buys that I've made. I intend to keep it operating until no longer viable.

I was curious and checked out first message was back in December of 1999. I started this group way back then I think not too long after I got my original D700A (which BTW is still operating at a friend's shack to whom I sold it). The microphone cable disintegrated but other than that, it works as good as it did when I bought it from a store in Salt Lake City. Does anyone recall when the radio came out? I know I picked up mine the day it was available for sale to the dealers.
The reason I was walking down memory lane was that the first group was indeed eGroups.com so that was before Yahoo got involved.
