The problem with the TH-78, and other Kenwood HTs before that one,
is that it will not tune in 5 kHz steps on UHF.  It's limited to 10 kHz
as its smallest tuning step.  You *might* be able to fool the radio into
accepting those other frequencies by also changing the tuning steps,
but I wouldn't hold out much hope for that.
