I have never had to do what is described below with my MP's.  I just went to
the shack and tried several things and no matter which I turned on first
(rig or cpu) or which contest I picked (I tried several)... NA always read
the radio and changed to that band.  I never use alt-f1/alt-f2, by personal
preference.  I either press the band button on the mp or I type in a freq.

Seems like perhaps a non documented feature that showed up in some version
other than 10.53?  I am still using 10.53 as I have no reason to use
anything else.

I guess it may be a minor defect but you have already identified a
workaround... therefore, it is probably low priority (more than likely Dave
was not aware of it).  I'm sure Dave will look at it while he is off for the
holidays :-)  He has one mp, so he can test it.

Not sure what version you are using?

Also, not sure what you mean by pressing alt-f1/f2 a few times and "it may
sync" means.  Does that mean that sometimes it does not... or does it always
sync once you do this?  Why press it more than once?

How long have you waited before pressing alt-f1/f2?  Depending on where you
hit the polling cycle it could take a few seconds before the cpu reads the
freq and updates the screen.

Bob and others,

I see we all do the same to get the radio and computer to match
bands/mode. I call it a problem, in that, my TS940S radios synced
immediately with NA whenever they were turned on and off. I installed
the PIEXX interfaces in those radios..

Still wondering the reason why it is necessary to do the Alt /F1-F2 with
Yaesu FT1000MP and not the Kenwood TS940S? I do recall using the
original Kenwood factory interfaces, they were not as reliable as the PIEXX.
