      Hi Rick,

      Thanks for your very quick response, seeing that it must be early there!

      Just to verify that the Icom IC-736 requires the Radio Settings to be:

      "Icom Amateur Radios", and not:

      "Icom Amateur Radios (Early)"

      All now works as expected, thanks very much for the support over this.

If you switch to normal Icom Amateur I suspect it will work. It is working for other Icoms using 10 digit replies (e.g. 7200 )

      > I note that with 0.6.0.1 the version number is included in the log, which was helpful! But anyway, you can see the Icom replies in 6.0.1, and this seems to be replaced with Rcv Txt Err throught the whole of the 6.1.0 log. If you require the full Logs I will send them directly to you.

(I could quite easily press the Band Change Switch on the Radio.......). All that I have done is place the favourite V4Chat freqs at the top of the MiniLog for quick access, and it would be nice to be able to return to the original freq on any one Band after having tuned around a bit.

If the frequency sets correctly you have the correct address, baud rate etc. The only thing I can do is to add additional verbose logging to capture what (if anything) the 736 sends back in response to the command for request for frequency. If you can capture that some way It would help a lot.

Re-tune radio and click on the same entry again to revert back to frequency stored there and Transceiver doesn't tune. I have to click on another Log entry and then click back to original entry to get Transciever back to that stored entry.
