Hi Ron!  Here's what I know:

CW mode cane be selected as USB or LSB.  When the CW mode button is
pressed, either the USB or LSB mode button light blinks for a few
seconds.  To change to the other sideband, press the CW button one more

One does NOT have to retune when switching from CW to SSB in order to
answer a cross-mode call.  The indicated frequency changes instead!

This is a minor setup work-around.  If you tune to 26.000 MHz when
engaging the 430 band readout option, 432.000 will show up on 28.000. 
The thing seems to add 402 MHz to whatever the radio is tuned to when
the readout option is turned on.

I am using Log Windows 3.02 and when I change to 144 from 28 in menu
3-3, Log Windows contiunes to report 28 MHz even though the radio
display says 144.  My 1000MP serial number is 5J020115, indicating 1995,
October, lot 02.
Maybe later lot numbers fix this.  I don't know.
