None of the confusion is on my part.  I will state again, the FT-50 is a 
full duplex radio, in that while transmitting through a bent pipe repeater, 
one hears their own downlink.

You can also add the Yaesu Ft-5100 to the full duplex list.  While the 
FT-50 can do full duplex, it can't do cross band repeat.  The FT-5100 is 
capable of both full duplex and cross band repeat.

Again, someone else who has successfully used the FT-50 as a full duplex 
sat rig please come to my rescue!
