Re: IC-910H UX-910 Unit Question



Hi John,

The physical installation is listed in the documentation with the 
UX-910 1200Mhz Band Unit. If you look on page 73 of the Instruction 
Manual for the IC-910H it also gives instructions for installing the 
unit. The operational display is explained in the 910H manual on 
pages 19-21. Pressing and holding the BAND M/S button the front of 
the radio will switch the unselected band in place of one of the 
displayed bands. You basically only have to bands that you can 
operate at a time.

I hope that I have not confused you. It is explained in the manual. 
The manual can be downloaded at the following URL.
