From what I've seen, that "feature" describes a majority of the dual
band radios. I also am watching/waiting for a less expensive dual band
(V+V preferred) that allows data to transmit on one band while the
microphone keys the other band. Given the infrequency and shortness of
data bursts, I'm perfectly willing to live with the interruptions when
either side is transmitting. I do that today with my mobile and the HT
that's tracking. I hear a short gap in received audio when the tracker
Of course, the tracking side needs to not key the transmitter if the
audio side is transmitting!
