 I asked Kenwood rep, and was told at Dayton last year that it was going to
be full duplex like the D7. Maybe there will be an operational model on the
floor this year. If so we need to try and verify full duplex. See you guys
at Dayton!...

Last year at Dayton, where it was not so much announced as broadly hinted
at, I asked and was told that it was planned to have all the satellite
functions of the D7, plus a thorough modernization for components and
features.  It will be interesting to see whether they deliver on that.
After being burned with the Alinco last year, I will hold off on ordering
one to get some operational reports.  ;)
