Why do it on 144.39?  The spirit of FD is emergency comms, so why not QSY
and pretend that all the tall digipeaters were taken out by a disaster?....
and using the d700s are mobile digipeaters is great!  We were able to fill
in coverage of a motocross race by seeing the point on the track that we
lost the gps tracker and parking a car with a d700 in it in that vicinity.
Worked like a champ!

In theory there is no difference between practice and theory.
