The 610 was definitely full duplex; see the second bullet at 
http://www.alinco.com/Products/DR-610T.shtml. I used a 605 extensively 
on satellite, and a friend has a 610 still.

Just think about how a cross band repeater works, and you'll realize 
that any radio that does that must by design be capable of full duplex.
