But there never can be standards build into the radio for 70cm and 23cm  
because those standards don't exist.
So you can push for kenwood and yeasu including some arbiturary standard  
offsets and tell sysops to transmit only a + or - but if yeasu picks  
+/-1.6 and kenwood picks +1.6/-7.6 then it still won't work resulting in  
sysops going back to always include offset frequentie or use the double  
frequentie objects.
