Yes, you can program the memories in a TH-D72A either way. I have
yet to do that on my TH-D72A, but used the Kenwood MCP-D74 software
to add those 5 channels to my TH-D74A. If you don't do that,
you have to set the TNC to use one of the "bands" (VFOs) as
the receive band and the other as the transmit band. Since I am
not working this full-duplex, the memory channel approach seemed
easier to do than having to make adjustments in both VFOs.

Maybe we can hook up over the weekend. Other than possibly one
pass early Friday morning, I'm probably not going to be on any
ISS passes until then.
