The radio might be able to be operated in packet by setting everything up manually but that is very time intensive for the crew (I'm guessing it would be about 30 steps) and it would have to be done before and after every school contact. Manually changing all those settings greatly increases the likelihood of having a school contact fail due to human error.

Greetings to the group
I have a question beyond the current state of the D700 Programming; Can the radio be set manually to communicate beyond school contacts? In essence, can it be set to run either cross-band repeat or packet without a reprogramming with a laptop?
It doesnt make sense for the radio to be off between school contacts.
On another note, we lost wally shira this week at the age of 86 from natural causes. We should all have such a great life. Regards to nasa
Thanks for information, pat n2oeq
