the ftm 350 does have to be in vfo for it to qsy. it will not qsy  in memory mode. but it will tx the current memory as a qsy freq if you have it set in the beacon stats text, as long as its a tx-able freq in memory or vfo.

Thanks for looking at it. I worked with the NW-APRS group initially and finally, James of VE6SRV notoriety, to get them worked out. Unfortunately, others just pointed at the spec and said follow it. For a digipeater noob, it was very frustrating to have very knowledgeable be no help! Thanks again James for your help to knit them together and help with my understanding! IIRC, we had the FREQUENCY OBJECT VS POSITION COMMENT conversation a couple of times. Sadly, we will have it again in the future unless this go around burns it into our bran cells. :) Yup, bran! Use to be more brain. :(
 
Everyone missed the r VS R. That doesn't have any affect on QSY or TUNE but still it doesn't match the spec. I will have to head up the hill now.
 
 
On the FTM-350, we did some testing recently and I remember them working but I have asked the three parties to do it again. I do remember some weirdness though. The radio had to be in a specific mode, such as VFO instead of MEMORY, or it would not QSY. When I hear back, I will certainly forward the results.

Yes, the lower-case r is all that jumps to my eyes.  Do you know if an FTM-350 can QSY/Tune to these objects?  If so, it debunks the fact that they need the frequency in the command and not the name.

Hi Lynn,
 
 
Below are four FREQUENCY objects I put out. The only thing I see is a lower case r for the range. Would that be all that is NON-COMPLIANT?
 
Thanks!

The T141.3 is non-compliant. The spec says that tones do not include
the decimal places because they've been standardized.
