      Thanks Gary,

      Yes the 'Polling = Zero' does give me the functionality (or argueably  lack of) I want but that wasn't what I was trying to get across.
      I am using 'Polling = Zero' at the moment since that is all that works with CAT control on (for me anyway, thanks again Joe that gets me what I need).

      Having re-read what I wrote I can see I didn't explain myself very well, trying again:

      When I said ' have the directions for CAT contol individually selectable?' I was thinking from the front panel. But:
      Having looked at it again perhaps just a 'Read Rig Frequency' button near the Frequency Display would suffice when the user has 'Polling = Zero' set in the config, that may also be useful for people who have a long polling time set as well (and want to force a 'Frequency Read').

      If it is any help, I sometimes use 'IC706_BKT Icom 706 Control version 4.13.0' to control my Rig and it reads and writes no trouble but I can't run it with CAT control set on WSJT-X due to port sharing issues (I guess I could set up some sort of port sharing but would rather not go down that route).

      If you set the CAT Polling Interval to zero, then the software controls the rig, but it doesn't read anything back form the radio - I think that this is what you want.

      This is how I run WSJT-X with my FT-817.

      See Setup > Configuration > CAT > Polling Interval
