It depends on the radio itself. Some will...... It's not a far jump.

I have a vague recollection of seeing some discussions on here about "sliding"
the VCO range of radios a bit. The old rule when we were using RSS/DOS programs
on Sabers and like radios was that if the excursion was more than 1 mHz above or
below the radio's designed range it usually wouldn't work. In today's world the only
sure answer is to try it if you can before you buy it. Too bad the mobiles don't have
the wider range of the portables; I sure wish they did.
