Years ago at the Boxboro hamfest while manning the AMSAT booth I asked  Chip 
Margelli when Yaesu was going to come out with a  FullDuplex  replacement 
for the FT-847. He looked at me for a few seconds and said, when are you 
guys going to get some more satellites up? As the times were lean for 
launches, I had no answer for him. Well Yaesu, and Chip times have certainly

Just double checking - I assume the FT-991 can NOT do full duplex satellite
communications.  Is this correct?

I'm thinking the only radios on the 'new' market that that currently do all
mode full duplex satellite communications out of the box are :

Icom IC-9100

Kenwood TS-2000

Is this correct?

My old reliable FT-847 is now passing the 16 year mark, and I am considering
an update.

Thanks and 73,
