Gack! Well, I guess know that my comments don't match my code. :-) 
Like that never happens...

Here's what followed that oops in my code--you're right, of course-- 
and maybe I shouldn't have trimmed it out:

     *             reply: Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 MM
     *                    Q1-Q4:freq (see setFreq)
     *                       MM:mode (see setOperMode)
     **/
    public int getFreq() throws IOException
    {
        byte freq[] = { 0, 0, 0, 0, 0};
        byte getFreq[] = { 0, 0, 0, 0, (byte)0x03 }; 
        CATin.write(getFreq);
        CATout.read(freq);
        return unpackFreq(freq) ;
    }

Otherwise, my code matches your documentation. :-) All CAT command 
codes are five bytes long. Thanks for the spotting my error. Lo siento 
mucho, Fernando.
