    Thanks, Brett.
    Hard to believe but I did know 50HF meant 6 meters. (y)
    Seems like a firmware update could add FM to clear things up.
    One last question: what is IIRC?

    K7LZR is coming out with a control program for the 891. Will be freeware. Fixes the USB/LSB selection difficulty. carascont.png
    I am on a mailing list for alert status.

    Will that make setting the dsp after band changes easier too?

    I read the 891 has different CAT commands than the rest of the line. Seems like Omni-rig would have added it already though. Will have to check this software out. Thanks for the link!

    I'm on the list too.

    I really don't understand why the USB/LSB auto selection is an issue for most people.

    The only time it is an issue is for the people (like me) that operate certain digital modes on 40 and below.

    there is an EZ "workaround" tho.

    The auto selection makes it wasy for me when changing bands while I am mobile. But I just play on phone...

    Writing code and fixing bugs is pretty time consuming. Please let us know when you have an update.
