Hi Clive,

Your 930 is operating correctly.  When TR is in *** Search and Pounce *** mode,
the shift keys will change the rig's frequency when the RIT is off.  This is
normal.  When TR is in *** Run *** mode and the 930's RIT is on, then the shift
keys will change the RIT.  Note that this is NOT a function of the PIEXX board,
but rather a neat feature in TR for the 850 (and now the 930, too).

I've had my PIEXX board in my 930 since February, and absolutely love it.  There
are some really neat features added.  One of my favorites is RIT on and DIAL 
LOCK on allows the main tuning knob to control the RIT.

I highly recommend the PIEXX board for those who want to bring their 930 into
the computer age.

73 es cul,
