Actualy it´s niether mute or desense, the d700 turns off the vhf 
reciever when it is transmitting on vhf, it has to or it would blow out 
the forntend, when you operate on vhf/uhf the internal diplexer will 
take care of the protection and the reciever is not turmed off.

In the end it doesn´t realy matter tough because the result is the same, 
you can´t recieve on vhf when transmiting on vhf.
