Default 9v memory retention life in the Pro-2006?

I recently picked up one of these great old Pro-2006 radios on eBay. It's still an awesome performer on analog VHF, but that's of limited use in the metro area where I live. However, it will be perfect for our occasional trips to the Oregon Coast where nearly everything is still non-trunked VHF analog. I was going to program the radio with everything I listen to at the coast, then store it in the closet for maybe up to a year or two until the next beach trip. Then I got to wondering if a fresh 9v battery will actually maintain the memory that long. Can anyone give me a sense of whether 1 or 2 years of memory retention while in storage is a reasonable expectation for these units?

Thanks very much for the help!
