As far as I recall, going back to the 60's when I was a marine radio officer, VHF radios had to be 'idiot proof', so that they could be used in an emergency by any unskilled person on the bridge of a ship. One switch for Ch.16 and a fixed squelch and volume so that it could not be muted. You could select any channel number, but not frequencies, you didn't need to know anything, the coast radio station would tell you the working channel to switch to, usually 21 or 22. No need for callsigns, the call was the ship name. Certainly no out-of-band selection.

I'm curious while not having used the 400 if it is capable of repeater use on 2 mtrs.
A Veteran is someone who at one point in their life wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America', for an amount ' up to, and including their life'. That is honor

Yes it is, up to 40 different memory slots. You just have to enter both transmit and receive frequencies, instead of a receive and offset, like you do for an amateur radio. It supports PL and DPL as well, both encode and decode.
