Will it do simultaneous cross-band transceive so you can hear your
own signal on a satellite?  Also, it's too bad the "B" band can "only"
receive CW/SSB, not transmit it!  I guess the FT-817 is still the
smallest transceiver in current production (that I know of) for SSB
and CW work, and unfortunately, it doesn't do simultaneous cross-band
transceive. . .

Still, the TH-F6A sounds like a really nice new radio.  I might have
to trade in my FT-50r, IC-3AT, and IC-R10 radios for one of these!
It should do everything that the set of them will do!
