Answer to Q2 is that entering a frequency in SD does NOT move the K2 freq
although SD *IS* reading the frequency from the K2.  I don't use QM.

Settings: the .SD file is a renamed copy of Paul's Kenwood file dated 15
Aug 1997. My .INI file holds POLLTIME=1000 LINKTIME=250.

If it helps ... my "programmers reference" says if an external program
sends "FA00014060000" the K2 will change to 14060.0 (FA=VFO A, FB=VFO B, 
FR=Receive VFO selection, FT=Transmit VFO selection).
