The TH-D72A is the real deal as a cross-band full-duplex HT for
FM satellite work. And, unlike with the DJ-G7T and some
versions of the IC-W32A, no RX
desense while
transmitting.  :-)

I used VFO B for TX, VFO A for RX (it has better
sensitivity), balanced audio all the way to VFO A,
open squelch for
VFO A, 5W transmit, and juat worked
AO-27.  Nice!

I will try it on a later AO51 pass today, not the next
one around 2147 UTC, for another test.  As for APRS,
it took little time to set it up and get it picked up
online.  I have not hooked it up to a computer yet, but
that is not a high priority yet.
