Re: Dayton



Many seem to be missing the point here.  A satellite radio doesn't need two
receivers in order to be able to do full duplex, cross-band operation.  You
only transmit on one transmitter and you only receive on one receiver.  You
do need to be able to do that on separate bands, however, and I believe this
new rig will do that.  Sounds like a neat radio to me.  I especially like
the remote head idea for mobile use.
