Hi Wes,

I find it very interesting that you can utilize the D700 in the South 
Carolina National Guard. We here in the FL Army Mars have been informed we must 
comply with the VHF equipment used by the military and Government services which 
must meet NTIA standard for frequency stability (6 PPM) and narrow bandwidth 
(11KHz MAX).

At the present time we have received a large number of Commercial MICORS  
free as surplus which must have their freq changed from 150 MHz to the State MARS 
and Military VHF frequencies. The MICORS come with stock stability of 5 PPM 
and 10 KHz bandwidth. There is also a 2 PPM option. The MICORS are true FM 
modulated and are capable of 9600 Baud operation. Of course we have to pay for the 
frequency change but if the D700 meets all the other criteria requirements of 
the Military and Government I personally would rather pay just a few more 
dollars and purchase a D700. 

I would Appreciate your comments so I can show the others in our group.
