You're gonna hate this:

Multiple Modes = True/False.  Manual says the default is contest dependent.
 You can see the default value in the Ctl-J menu.  When it is set to False,
the result is exactly as you describe.  The defaults don't always make
sense, either -- for ARRL DX, for example, the default is TRUE, which isn't

Since the PIEXX cannot change the TS-930 mode, all it does is echo back the
last mode change command sent to it.  I have not had any difficulty with
confusing TR, but I, too, remain confused about the use of the Ctl-C/Ctl-D
commands (like NEXTBANDMAP) when in SSB mode.
