I had not heard of that drop.  Of course
it could be there and no one has noticed before.

Actually, I think gotcha is perfect for this.
I havd completely forgotten that the D700
will do 220.  I think it is becasue I needed it
to tune 250 for some satelite work we are doing
and the performace there was down 60 dB
almost completey deaf.  So I assumed this
applied to the whole 200-300 band not realizing
that they probably peaked it on 220 of course.

So this is good news that it works on 220.

I'm sorry Bob.  I didn't mean to imply that *I* got *you* with that Gotcha.


   I just wanted to point out that 200-300 Rx is another "A-side only"  thing*and


    I meant that "gotcha"  as a general warning.  When my D700 A-side (with the TNC & APRS running) is switched from 144.39 APRS to the local DX cluster (or anything else) on 222, this causes the B-side sensitivity on 2M to drop significantly.  


   My D700 does this.  Would someone try this and verify?.   For all I know, my radio may be either typical or broke and/or it may do something similar when the A-side is switched to 300-400, but I haven't tried this.  I asked this on the Yahoo D700 group, but no response.

Ah yes, you got me there.    * still
to have APRS on the A band which can tune
both the APRS on 144.39 and the DX cluster
on 220 and so that is ideal to get both.

That leaves band B for all other bands
Remmeber, in APRS mode, the TNC also
will captur DX spots its just a matter of
whetehr you tune 144.39 or the DX freq.

  Bob'n Folks,
  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?

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.
