Radio transmits at 435 ... receives everything (grin) - (throw a long wire on it, and sit out back one evening ... you'll hear tone o' stuff on the pre-programmed shortwave freqs - an amazing little receiver!).
Oh - and page 43-ish of the manual covers "split freq" operations - just like other modern Yaesu HTs, it CAN be programmed to listen on 440 and TX on 2M in one memory channel. The use of the popular software programs to program the unit make that much less painful to accomplish.
