Could that be Kenwood's engineers trying to protect your transverter?  ;-)
I know my TH-79A would not let me tune anything but 438-450 before I did
the M4 wideband mod -- they seem to have a tendency to like to protect
operators from their own foolishness.  Half the neat stuff on a 79A is only
available in the app notes and *completely* undocumented in the manual.

Nice radios, all the same .. and this is a neat little trick.  Saves math
if nothing else ..
