This radio is capable of full-duplex operation, so it was of interest
for FM satellite work. Unfortunately, as with most recent full duplex
handheld transceivers, it desenses too much to be useful for full
duplex satellite work on V/U satellites like SO-50.

If you have been in the commercial and amateur radio businesses for more than a decade, you KNOW the FCC would never allow a single rig to operate on MURS, FRS at more than 500mW, and GMRS - along with commercial freqs.
