Hi Mike,

Full duplex is pretty simple:  Listening to the downlink (receive) while 
*simultaneously* transmitting on the uplink.  This enables you to hear you 
transmission WHILE YOU ARE TRANSMITTING - at the same time.

There are a lot of benefits behind operating this way, the main one being 
reducing QRM to other stations and maximizing operating time.

Does that answer your question?

I'm having a difficult time of understanding the concept of Full Duplex. Can
anyone explain it to me? I have the ARRL satellite book, read about it in
there and Wikipedia. I still didn't understand how it works with a
transceiver setup like we use.
