You could try to prepare your command with dummy characters as SRS1=00000,
then exit TR, load your config into an hex editor and replace the zeroes (hex
30) with the five hex bytes of your desired Yaesu command. I think the manual
uses the hex codes, so it is easier to enter it that way.

I do not know if it will work. I once tried programming radio commands, but
gave up on it. It might be that TR did not accept Null characters in the
config file and did weird things after restart. Commands without Null bytes
seemed to be OK as far as I remember.
