I will tell you that setting the freq via the interface acts very strange. 
I get it to work, and it reports a very invalid frequency when it returns. 
The front panel of the Omni looks fine, but it is reporting a freq with all 
sorts of hex characters in it.. If I send the request in again, 2nd, 
3rd,4th.....'n'th  times all works fine... Go figure.....

Hi Robert,

I think confusion IS the name of the game here  ;-)

Yep, TenTec says controlling N1 is not supported on
the interface but WriteLog software consistently
resets the darn thing everytime it sets the transceive
frequency via the interface.  Not a lot of fun in a
contest where you want to keep N-1 set.  Well if no
one can tell me the relationship between the interface
and N-1, then I'll just swap my filters around and
stick the least used filter in N-1.
