Sheldon:

I think Hans is down to less than 10 bytes of unused memory. Another problem is that "out of band" likely varies at different places in the world. I'm not sure if Hans could use the EEPROM space, but that still means a change in the source code, and that's not going to happen.

Hi Hans,

 

Please consider validating the frequency values received in "FA" and "FB" CAT commands to confirm they are valid for the QCX's band.  Currently, in v1.5, out-of-band values are accepted and set the VFO to unsupported frequencies.  Easy to do, by accident, when hand-entering values in logging programs.

 

Thanks and 73, Sheldon VE1GPY
