Re: HT question...



Hi Mike,

You should remove the FT-50R from your list as it is NOT full duplex.  I use 
one for receive with an IC-2SAT for transmit for full duplex operation for 
demonstrations.  You could add the IC-24AT to your full duplex list -- you 
do have to do a "push button" mod to it for the 435 MHz satellite band.
