    Ola all,

    Going from this post: Re: [Hamlib-developer] Setting frequency in split mode using hamlib
    https://sourceforge.net/p/hamlib/mailman/message/28292868/

    Was there any method/ammend to how one would change the frequency of the main and sub bands without the radio flipping the vfo all the time - which as Stefano points out is interrupting reception. And not ideal if someone is transmitting too!

    Any suggestiongs in this area would be greatly appreciated! 73s Chris

    Hi,
    To my knowledge, the IC-910 protocol has no support for changing the frequency of the main and sub bands without going to that "VFO". In Hamlib terms, there's no support for "targetable_vfo", hence it is emulated by flipping the vfo.

    Some other protocols like Kenwood's are luckier in that regard (though only for frequency).

    Please let us know if you find a better (probably undocumented) protocol command for the IC-910. Could it be through a special memory channel? It's strange Icom didn't think of a nice solution for a rig marketed for satellite traffic.

    Sorry
    73 Stéphane
