What is that command supposed to do?  I don't find an FD opcode in my
manual.  I also don't understand the Ctl-C in the middle, or the length of
the command, which I believe should normally be 5 bytes.

My Mark V will respond to certain commands sent by TR, but not others --
for example, the string SRS=<00><00><00><FF><09> clears the RIT, and
SRS=<00><00><00><00><85> transfers the frequency on VFOA to VFOB.  However,
none of the commands ending in opcode <75> do anything perceptible!  I know
that there are a number of errors in the manual's listing of commands, but
an entire opcode?
