Hi Jon

the 220 band does not have such a big market as 144 and 430/440 so it is
logic not to include it in a multiband trx.

I know of only one mutiband/multimode trx that can have a 220 mhz unit, the
ft736R from yeasu but i don't think it is made anymore.

maybe we in R1 get the 220 band and maybe pig's wil fly and hell freeses
over.
