I was given a TK-272G-1 and was wondering how easy it is to get it out of band to 2M. Will the CPS allow it, is it a code paug hack or just don't bother...

Been a while since I programmed a 272 but IIRC you can just type in the 2 meter frequency, it will giver you a "frequency is out of range" warning but the CPS / radio will take it.

Thanks, I was hoping that would be the case. The TK will make a nice backup radio.

Well, the TK-272 works great! I'm liking this little radio.
