Re: New kenwood HT



Dave,

I might be missing something but have found noway to get full duplex and it
is not mentioned in the manual.  You can not hear anything when keying the
rig.  It is the one downside that I have found so far.  However, it makes a
nice setup for 12 and maybe AO40 with the FT817
