[aprssig] D700 & USB

So, the only thing you really gain is the extended VHF rx frequencies.
But, you give up all UHF functions.
 
If you put the APRS on the A VFO, you can TX and RX VHF or UHF on the B
VFO.
 
I wouldnt call taking away half of your TX ability giving you options.
Particularly when you have to go into the menu and change the data band
to the A VFO if you want to use UHF at all. It's not like it is a one
button flip.
 
The only viable reason I can think of to use the B VFO for data is if
you needed the extended VHF RX frequencies. Guess it is all in what you
want to do.
 
Just because it us usable, it doesn't mean it isn't crippled. I just
means it's operation is severely hindered. I would call giving up an
entire band crippled.
 
But, hey, if you want to setup your rig that way, great. Thats why we
have options.

	Well, you completely lose UHF. Sounds pretty crippled to me.

First, you can use APRS on VHF and talk on a VHF repeater by setting up
your rig this way.  You also gain access to the extended VHF rx
frequencies by doing this.  So, if that is your goal, it can be
accomplished.  If you want to do APRS and talk UHF, you set it up on the
other side.  Nothing is crippled.  It gives you choices!

	On what other radio can you have a TNC transmitting on one side
of the radio and transmit voice on the other side?  Regardless of what
bands are available, I don't see how this is crippling anything!

				Also:  Is there a way to put APRS on
band B
				        

				(right) and have ALL my
				memories
				      

				available on band A(not just VHF)?  I
have it the
				        

				other way around, but
				for
				      

				some odd reason would rather have APRS
on the B
				        

				band, and access my other
				      

				memory channels (UHF AND VHF) on the A
band.
				
				        

		
		
		You can set band B as the data band - works great I use
this for my APRS
		
		
		Band A does not receive UHF so you are limited to a
double vhf rig with
		that configuration
