That is, yes, you missed it. It's at the intersection of the top
row buttons over the main tuning knob and band/frequency keypad
and the VFO A/B/Split button column.
It doesn't have a detent. I have been doing the School Club
Roundup from our club station at work (W5RRR) and the IC781 there
doesn't have a detent in the RIT--I haven't operated our FT1000
or TS950 in some time, so can't speak to their RIT's
lack/possession of a detent. Personally, I don't tune for the
detent, I simply tune for good audio/note. If it's near 0.00,
fine. If not, fine.
Hardly an issue on which to base the purchase or non-purchase of
such a significant (and excellent) radio.
Get one. You won't miss the detent.
