Not to beat a dead horse here, but you may notice that both our  
vehicles the D700s have PM1, PM2, PM4, PM5 are identical, so if we  
switch vehicles for whatever reason, I don't have to stop and think  
to myself "what vehicle am I in, which channel is mine?" ... I know  
that regardless of vehicle PM1 is me 'on the road.' Likewise if my  
wife takes my Ranger truck, PM5 is her 'on the road' ... saves A LOT  
of confusion! In fact I wouldn't mind if Kenwood added 5 more  
configuration memories. I can think of uses for all of them!

cheers ... 73 de brian  riley,  n1bq , underhill center, vermont
