Yes and no. My Type 1 TK-890's won't drop below about 443 MHz. I'm sure there's a way to adjust it, I just haven't gotten around to doing it yet.

Agreed, very nice radios.

For a ham radio/hobbyist like me they're nice because they're new enough that accessories are easy to get but old enough that I don't have to pay an arm and a leg for one! :grin:
