The answer is "it depends" ...
The bandpass filters in the main receiver restrict listening
the subreceiver to listening to the main receiver band. If
you have the BPF-1 installed (standard on the FT-1000D) and
provide a SEPARATE ANTENNA to the antenna input of the BPF-1,
you can listed to separate bands.
This can result in complexity in antenna switching but it can
Note: this applies ONLY to the original FT-1000/FT-1000D. The
FT-1000MP and its descendents (Mark V, Field) can listen only
on the same band as main receiver since the subreceiver shares
the main receiver bandpass filter.
