The above is not quite true. It did not return the data the first time
I send IF but if I sent it again the data came back as it should. My
radio may not be working the way it should or the way other Kenwood
radios work but it did return the data on the second (AND ALL
SUBSEQUENT) times. The problem is that the data is one command behind.
That is the first time it ever see the command it returns nothing, the
second time it returns the data giving the status that existed when
the first command was sent, and so on. This very well may be a design
error in the Kenwood firmware that would have to be handled by sending
the command twice or it may be the way most or all 870s work. Neither
I nor Tree really are sure at this point.

I never said you don't want to fix it in the reflector. I said that
you may not pay to fix it for you if not very many people have the
problem and that I would understand why. I would not be happy that my
program does not work but I would realize that it just was not wroth
your time and effort. By this post I can see that you are interested.
I DON'T THINK THAT YOU FOLLOWED VERY GOOD NETIQUETTE POSTING VERBATIM

TOLD. I REMEMBER SENDING MAIL TO YOU THAT I WOULD KEEP THIS PRIVATE
AND YOU SAID GOOD. THE POST YOU JUST MADE WAS ANYTHING BUT.
