I'm looking at jumping several generations ahead in technology and replacing my old faithful Yaseu FT7900 dual-band FM transceiver with the TMD710A.
I assume the 710A has the capability of storing memories in what Yaesu calls "banks"; don't know the Kenwood term. In My FT7900, i have one bank for local repeaters, another that includes all 2-mtr repeater freqs, another for local public service, etc..
I'd like to set up the 710A -- assuming I buy one -- with the following memory arrangement.
-- One memory bank that is solely APRS. When I use this memory, the rig will switch to APRS, beacon my location, including a message that I am listening on 146.52. If I do this, how do I listen on 146.52 while the rig is beaconing on 144.39?
-- One memory bank that is solely my local repeater freqs, 2-mtr and 430.
-- One memory bank with every 2-mtr repeater freq, and, another bank with every 430 repeater freq
-- One bank with my local public service freqs -- 1554 - 159 Mhz. I'm on the local volunteer fire department and rescue squad and need to scan these freqs, even though I carry a Motorola handheld for public service communications.
On the old FT7900, I select Memory Bank 1 and all I hear is local repeaters; Memory Bank 4 is only local public service, etc. . Can I do the same with the TMD710A?
