This problem is not just limited to Kenwoods.  The UHF band on virtually 
ALL current radios lack a stored band plan to determine automatically 
whether to offset +5 MHz or -5MHz.   Even though all of the same radios 
(or sister models in the case of monobanders) have the two-meter band 
plan and offset table stored in firmware.
