I noticed that the ads say 'IF DSP on main band and AF DSP on sub band'.
Every main/sub type satellite radio I have seen makes you transmit on the 
main band and receive on the sub band, which in turn means that you use the 
less capable receiver for satellite downlink. It would be nice to know if 
this is true with the TS-2000.

Also I read the manual and could not find the up/down mic click step size 
in SSB, or any menu to change the default, whatever it is.
