I am a new owner of the TH D72 by Kenwood.  I'm having a bit of difficulty with a few default settings and was hoping am ore experienced user could pass on a few tips.  
My understanding is that I cannot save duplex setups into the memory channels.  I am manually entering the necessary frequencies for AO 85 and SO 50.  Each time I put a new frequency in the radio defaults to a 25khz step and the tone defaults to 88.5 Hz.  I want to have 67Hz and 5khz steps as default.  
There has to be a better way of using the radio for satellites (my only use) then manually entering each frequency and then manually changing each default but I haven't found it in the manual yet.  
Any help for a smoother experience would be appreciated.  I can barely remember to go outside in time for each pass, let alone remember to go through all the keypad functions.
