FYI, on my TS-790 the noise blanker and IF shift work just fine on the sub 
band, as does the AGC (and squelch and AF ;-)

You are right about the RIT (not really needed for a receive only sub band) 
and built-in narrow CW filter not working on the sub band, though.  Since 
I'm into the "new" digital of 1's and 0's rather than OFF and ON, it 
doesn't bother me :)
