It would be nice if the new Wouxun could work SO50 full-duplex. Some have
reported that the FCC ID number on the new UV8D is the same as the UV6D. If
so, that could imply the insides are the same as the UV6D - which is not
capable of full-duplex operation.

Then again, two Baofeng UV-5R HTs cost less than the MSRP of that new
Wouxun HT, and would get you a workable full-duplex FM satellite station.
