Hi Tom,

You CAN use the F Keys to send hex codes to the rig.  I've been doing it 
for over a year with my MkV.  I've developed a method for simulating 
SO2R with one MkV.  I call it SO1.5R.  I've been trying to finish the 
documentation so I can put it in the public domain.  One misguided group 
actually used it in WRTC!  In the mean time check sections 5.2 and 5.3 
of the manual (mine is 6.56) and the release notes for v 6.59.
