OK.  So it uses 70cm as one band, what does it use for the second band?  The
problem with the original Sky Command was that while all the commanding was
done on 70cm, the base radio would send audio back to the remote.  The ARRL
saw this as a control link and so did the FCC when Kenwood petitioned them.
What is the second band now for the link back to the handheld/mobile?
