Ok i have not measured this either but i know that the TS2000 is different in E and A version.

It's legal in Norway as long as you are not occupying the simplex frequencies.
This is not a problem as UHF is rarely used in simplex. VHF are a bit more used but in most areas there are mountains blocking the frequency so that it's space enough for everybody. Even in other places in Norway with less mountains i really don't think this is a problem.

To take over the control link you need the correct subtone (not difficult to scan for) and you need to use the same callsign on AX25.

The wireless requires a 3 digit code and is a nice function.

I have used SkyCommand several times as my home QTH is not HF friendly and this works very good :o)

Wireless i have only been playing with but it's a nice tool.
