I think it whould help an awfull lot, it would allow you to switch firmware 
before leaving to an 850 or 900 area. In a lot af cases that will involve a 
air travel and a somewhat longer stay in the 'other frequency' area. If it 
could be just a build option I also can imagine a bit of software which makes 
the switch trivial.
However, the issue appears to involve hardware as well, so I don't have high 
hopes for that. But maybe thet manage to get a jumper on the board or 


        If all the salmon caught in Canada in one year were laid end to end
