I use a D74A as my receiver and utilize the recording functionality. Once
enabled it only records when the is activity. If the squelch is on and
nothing is breaking it, no recording happens. I have not tried it while
transmitting firm what I remember.

I use an MFJ duplexer along with another radio & an Arrow so I can do full
duplex and it normally works great; I do not know if the same is true for
an Elk.
