      Тема: RE: [N1MM] Experimental program version - Icom radio control


      Programming the Icom inactive VFO or getting the inactive VFO frequency
      requires selecting the VFO first. All other brands have direct access. This
      makes implementing features like this and CTRL+SHIFT+Up/Dn more involved.

      The Icom set frequency code is all new in this experimental version. There
      should be fewer commands being sent to the radio (few/no repeats) and more
      responsive. Given the combinations of Icom radios, features, and program
      modes (SO1V, SO2V, SO2R) the code needs testing by the Icom owners before
      public release.

      I will be interested to hear from an IC-775 owner. That was the first
      release of the Dual Watch and it's a little different.

      John, K3CT

      Aha! (That famous palindrome again!) That explains my question on the
      previous post - it's for the *other* VFO!

      Thanks for that Bob.
