I wonder if this is USA centric?  In the USA, the 145 MHz band
above 145.49 is not used for repeaters.  But since Kenwood sells
a European version of the radio, then those radios should
reccognze the auto-repeater-offset in that region?  Can someone
confirm if this is a bug in the European version of the radio,
or if this a USA radio being used in Europe?

Is this a typo?  Or do you use 400 KHz splits over there?

But is this getting the offset from your "-600Hz" or is it doing
it based on auto-offset of -600 Hz in that band range?

Thanks if you can clarify this... Thanks
