No joke.  Menu 1-6-2 (radio-tnc-dcd sense), choices are data (RX) band 
or A&B.  Page 24 in the instruction manual, with a little more info on 
page 5 of the specialized communications manual.

If you'd like for the TNC to only transmit when both bands are quiet, 
e.g., when you're in a voice QSO and don't want APRS to step on the 
party you're listening to, this is useful.  It's also useful for what 
Wes described.
