True, Steve and Doug, KR2Q, did clarify this.
For everyone watch the video. There are two big red lights (LEDs?) on
top of each radio. When the left hand radio is transmitting the red
light on the right hand radio is on (locked out?) and when the right
hand radio is transmitting the red light on the left hand radio (not as
easily seen) is on.
Most of us still think that he's a mutant. :-)
