With only one exception. If you have to tune in the AIRCRAFT AM band, is the only thing that and A can do that B cannot. But there are all kinds of things that B can do that A cannot. SO except for the one exception above, it makes little sense to waste band B on APRS.....
I know this ain't a D700 sig, but...
Not quite on the D700. Only the A side tunes 222 (200-300) as well.
When the A side is on 222 (there is a 1200 baud 222 DX cluster in Mchenry IL.) the B-side 2M Rx reverts to hither-to-fore the un-published balsa setting (menu 9-3-Z) (:-). Would someone else verify this?
I wanted to watch the packet cluster and symul listen to the NIDXA on-air Packet-Talker announce, but the local 2M clusters are all 9600 & I just wanted to go to a 222 memory on Rx A. When I did this, I thought I had killed my 2M Tx!! 'cuz I could only "key-up" very close repeaters. Until I realized that I just wasn't hearing them key-up. My oaken 2M Rx fooled me.
Here's the skinny. I went out to the car and got my CSFTYDUOETR (Cheat-sheet-for-things-you-don't-use-often-enough-to-remember --gotta get a better acronym). Note the minor differences (*) in coverage for the "same" bands, A vs. B Rx.
A side norm
136-200 *1 (wider range than B)
A side sub:
118-136 (gee. does AM only work here?)
200-300 (B 2m goes hard of hearing)
B side norm
400-524 *2 (wider range than A)
B side sub
73, Steve, K9DCI

Yes, Kenwood made the radios virtually the same so setup is nearly identical. ...[snip]
