This problem is not just limited to Kenwoods. The UHF band on virtually
ALL current radios lack a stored band plan to determine automatically
whether to offset +5 MHz or -5MHz. Even though all of the same radios
(or sister models in the case of monobanders) have the two-meter band
plan and offset table stored in firmware.
