Can you name a specific manufacturer that claims their equipment is "Full Duplex" when it isn't ?
I note Yaesu say the FTM-350 as well as being "Full Duplex" does:
"For emergency work, or to extend the range of a hand-held unit, the FTM-350R includes Cross-Band Repeat capability."
Now it seems to me the Cross-Band Repeat facility wouldn't work if it wasn't full duplex.
