Yeah, with a D700.  I hear 220 repeaters just fine with the D700.  I'm just confused why a 2-meter digipeater is showing up on 220.090 even though the digipeater is on 144.390.  I know which digipeater it is by looking at the packet monitor.  It announces itself once every ten minutes.  Unless there's a crossbanding radio somewhere that's pulling in 144.390 and putting it out on 220.090 I have no other explanation.  I don't hear 2 meter voice repeaters when the D700 is tuned to 220 so the front end should be ok.
