To Mark and the rest of the AO-51 command team - THANK YOU for getting '51 on and back to V/U mode for the 5:24PM PDT Thursday / 0024 GMT Friday pass - Gordon West and I had a blast demo'ing it at the Orange County Fairgrounds!

We had three media photogs ... one magazine represented. Gordo is writing up the demo for an upcoming magazine article.

As most other Alinco DJ-G7T handheld owners have stated, when keying up on 2M, there is, indeed, still a significant loss of sensitivity on the sub-band (in our case, the 440 band) - even with Alinco's latest firmware.
