Bob and others,

I see we all do the same to get the radio and computer to match 
bands/mode. I call it a problem, in that, my TS940S radios synced 
immediately with NA whenever they were turned on and off. I installed 
the PIEXX interfaces in those radios..

Still wondering the reason why it is necessary to do the Alt /F1-F2 with 
Yaesu FT1000MP and not the Kenwood TS940S? I do recall using the 
original Kenwood factory interfaces, they were not as reliable as the PIEXX.
