This certainly looks right, but I can't get it (or the earlier method with 
the control characters) to work AT ALL on my Mark 5.  That's weird because 
frequency readout and clarifier clear (which must use the same CAT command 
string) work fine, but when I press the function keys the radio just sits 

Has anyone tried this on a Mark 5 and gotten it to work successfully?
