There are apparently some mods available to modify the xmit audio. I haven't 
tried them yet, but I found the 2M/70cm HT very sensitive on AO-51 reception 
with only the standard whip antenna. I hope to do some experiments with one 
of these non-full-duplex HTs as a RCVR and another as a XMTR - very cheap 
full duplex.. I would like to try them on my Arrow antenna with the diplexer 
removed. They seem to be nicely constructed for HTs from China, and due to 
the extremely wide frequency coverage, will not need any mods on that front.
