      Hi Iain,

      The pmVfoAB flag indicates that the currently used VFO is VfoA, and a switch
      between TX and RX would switch the radio to VfoB. It looks like most of the
      commands in the Elecraft ini file were copied from the Kenwood file.
      However, while the Kenwood radios send the transmit frequency in the IF
      response when transmitting, the excerpts from the log you have posted
      indicate that K3 always sends the receive frequency, regardless of the tx/rx
      state. Your fix seems address this difference.

      You are right, the second Flag21 must be renamed to Flag22.

      Thank you for your corrections! Please send me the corrected ini file, I
      will upload it to the OmniRig web page (when I return from the trip to VE7).
