Hi Don,

Thanks for clearing this up. These were taken from an old IC-970 driver
as per the CI-V manual. I was told when the IC-820 came out that the 
command set was the same. I don't have an IC-820/821 to test this
so it looks like I have been blissfully ignorant!

Yeah, I know the feeling! I just went through this with the FT-847
which will not handle split mode from the CAT interface. So, why is
it that the ham radio manufacturers don't seem to get fairly simple
stuff like this right? Can't they find any hams to test it out with?

By the way, I missed you in Portland this year. I hope everything is
OK with you.

Cheers and thanks again,
