  Any yaesu ft857D owners advise me if it is possible to monitor two freqs within the vhf band at the same time on this set ?? a local pmr company here uses different tx / rx freq`s and would be great to monitor both sides off the conversations. possible in any way with this set ?

Not at the same time. The closest you could get would be to set up the two frequencies in memory and scan between them.

In fact, I can't think of any single radio that would let you monitor two frequencies in the same band at the same time, except possibly an SDR (or SDR based radio like the K3), and even then they'd need to be in the passband.

I'm guessing at least a hundred or more counting current & older models.  {:>)

Just because you can think of a few doesn't mean I can...  Cheesy

What's really funny/sad is I own one of those radios listed.

It's not the same as dual rx, but it will be close.  You'll still only hear one signal at a time and are bound to miss some things, unless they don't talk over each other on that station.
