That's not what the article stated (page 76) and he was using a
FT-1000D ... "Although the Quadra tracks the band selections
from my FT-1000D, it doesn't track the frequency changes within
the band. For example, if I am on 14.025 and switch to 14.250,
the frequency display on the Quadra doesn't change and the tuner
settings don't change to the right ones for phone".
The MP and -D use the same band data/etc ...
"To change frequency, you set your transceiver to RTTY, or another
carrier mode and press the F-SET switch. If you have the BAND
DATA 2 cable hooked up as shown in the manual, the Quadra keys
the PTT on your transceiver. If not, you need to press the F-SET
switch and then put your transceiver into transmit."
Sorry, that's not "auto tune" ...

The question remains ... "how long" will ANY MRF-150's be
available ? I am sure there is stock in some places 'today',
but the unit has not been produced for over a year now ... so ?
