 From what I've seen, that "feature" describes a majority of the dual 
band radios.  I also am watching/waiting for a less expensive dual band 
(V+V preferred) that allows data to transmit on one band while the 
microphone keys the other band.  Given the infrequency and shortness of 
data bursts, I'm perfectly willing to live with the interruptions when 
either side is transmitting.  I do that today with my mobile and the HT 
that's tracking.  I hear a short gap in received audio when the tracker 

Of course, the tracking side needs to not key the transmitter if the 
audio side is transmitting!
