[aprssig] D700A Data Band & No 2m band

Thanks, Ken, so there is no solution to the problem I have. Sounds like I 
need to connect a duplexer to the d700 so I can use the 2m side of my dual 
band j-pole for local 2m work then (and a different radio). It's a 
pity...now it turns a dual band radio into a single band, just to monitor 
pcsat2.

I keep thinking there must be a better way to do things, and I guess making 
radio side B the databand won't solve it either!

73,

...hasan, N0AN
