    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

I just setup my Kenwood TM-D710A . I have programmed all of my frequencies into the memory channels. I'm curious as to how most people use this radio to get the most benefit of the dual receive? Does it make sense to have vhf on one side and uhf on another? Should I just use one side to monitor a favorite frequency and one side to scan all of my frequencies? Any suggestions? Thanks.

Basically play with it and see what you like. Most 710 users have one side set to APRS so we can't use both sides to scan.

Both ways of using each 'side' of that radio will work just fine. Which would be the most usable/beneficial to you?

Like others have said, find what works best for you. Sometimes I use both sides for 2m, sometimes I might use x-band repeat, and monitor public safety VHF while on 2m. Whatever is useful at the time.
