[Trlog] TR683 with TenTec Orion?

You are right the "Alt-B, V" don't work here with my IC-781's either (I
don't use them normally ) but I just type the frequency in the window and
that does send the radio to that freq/band.  Obviously it's all what we get
use to (like me using the "exchangeradios" command).

Mark -

I just downloaded 6.83 a few minutes ago, and it still does not appear to
work with my Orion correctly. At first glance, it looks like TRLog
communicates with the radio OK, if I type a freq in the call window the
radio goes to that freq/band, but no freq readout from the radio on the
TRLog screen and the program does not respond to band changes made on the
radio. It doesn't look too good...

On the other hand, the interface with my Omni VI+ is better but still not
complete; e.g., ALT-B and ALT-V don't change the band on the radio. Freq
readout is good and radio talks to TRLog well. In-band freq changes typed
in TRLog change radio, but out-of-band freq changes typed on do not.

Hope this helps.
