Actually, OT-11P has 200 memories totally. From my point, seems like 

Have no idea how it calculates frequency. However, I think it would 
overwrite tuning settings for small resolution like 10kHz or something 
like that.

I've been using Orion 565 with OT-11P for 2,5 years. This tuner works 
like ones in Japanese rigs such as Kenwood TS-570. The pattern is almost 
the same. The main reason why I decided to buy this one is that OT-11P 
was two times cheaper than original Orion tuner. So I just saved some 
bucks on that.
