Due to the crude 5 Khz steps, You only have 4 QSY points after starting at
-10 KHz.  The original D7 (maybe the G also) doess a full TNC re-init each
time you put it back into TNC mode from Command mode.  This takes a full 4
seconds.  The D700 mobile does not do this, so it is pretty quick.

Yes you may lose some packets, but the cut ones will have bad CRC, and so
will be ignored...
