The reason I ask is that I have a TM-d700a control panel (identical to the RC2000) and I'm getting the "PROG 115200 bps" reading on the display? I can toggle through different values with the VFO key, and pressing the Memory key brings up the following:
You have not stated IF this is an early TM-D700a (Clif may have S/N, I no longer have Service Bulletin).
Since I owned an early Kenwood TM-D700a , I will state what I know from my discussions with Kenwood Service,
10 years ago, when the TS-2000 was being introduced (and I was considering purchase).
1. The EARLY TM-D700a control panel WILL NOT work with the Kenwood B2000/TS-2000.I had one of these EARLY S/N versions.
2. Kenwood released a SERVICE BULLETIN to owners of these EARLY TM-D700a control panels, for a LIMITED TIME, Kenwood would reprogram (software & hardware change) these remote panels for FREE (plus shipping costs) to work properly as a remote for Kenwood B2000 radios.In other words, work like an RC-2000.
AFTER that time period, Kenwood would charge the TM-D700a owner for the software/hardware upgrade work.
3. In my case, I sold my TM-D700a (not upgraded) weeks before the D710 availability, to a Kansas amateur who wanted the unit badly.
