The only current production model that works for Mode J full duplex is the
Kenwood TH-D7A2. There are few other full duplex handhelds on the market,
but they all suffer from desense on 70cm when transmitting on 2m.

The other handhelds may be adequate for the Mode B FM transponders on EO-80
and the Fox-1 series, but they will not work for full duplex on SO-50.
