There is nothing to stop you from "fixing" the mismatch on 2m, with a
small preset tuner, (a simple L or T match, but built for VHF, I think
MFJ may have had something in the past like that). You can then run a
more power on 2m if you want, without upsetting the D700, while keeping
the antenna "standard" should you need to use it with an aviation handie
at some time.

My Cardinal came with a spare belly mount aviation antenna
intended for an aviation handheld transceiver to be used in the event of
main radios failure. I use it with a Kenwood D700A in the lowest
transmit power setting and it works fine. The mismatch between 144.390
and the aviation band doesn't appear to have any significant impact.
And the antenna still matches the aviation handheld just in case.
