Thanks so very much for this info. This is most *MOST* valuable.
I actually figured it out last night, but by trial and error. That
may sound silly considering all I had to do was look at the
display, but there's, well, a kind-of sort-of detail I left
out--I'm doing this being totally blind. That doesn't affect
anything else about the operation of the radio since I have the
VS-3 voice chip in it, but I figured the [F] button *MUST* change
*SOMETHING*, so I started poking around. When I got to the fourth
button from the left (or third from the right if you like counting
from the right), that one became the [STEP] button, which of
course matches perfectly with what you wrote. I also have the PDF
which I can read accessibly and will check out those pages for an
apparently much-needed refresher on these controlss. ;-)!

Looking at page 16 of them Manual (Page 22 of the PDF) you
press the function key to change the soft key assignments of the
keys along the bottom of the display.
Depending on how you have the menus set up, you might either
have to press the [F] Key once to bring up the set of buttons
that include Step, or press and hold the [F] key for 1 second to
get to the third tier.
The defaults are: F Tone REV Low Mute CTRL
[F] FOFF TSEL SHIFT STEP VISUAL DIM
Press [F] 1 second FOFF List PMON BCON POS
(Mine is set up so that the APRS functions are the primary
those are the ones I use the most daily. I almost never program
a frequency on the go except during an ARES drill or public
service event. Which set of buttons is in which tier is
controlled by Menu 1-1-5, Display, KEY FUNC. Default is Mode
1. I use Mode 3)
I don't know if the group will pass it, but I put a screen
print below from my manual
Hope this helps

owned my TM-D700A for probably fifteen years now, but have never
needed to change the default step size ... until now. The manual
1 Press the left or right [BAND SEL] to select band A or
• If necessary, press [F], then the same [BAND SEL] to
recall the sub-band.
2 Press [VFO].
3 Press [F], [STEP].
• The current step size appears and blinks.
4 Press [c]/ [d] to select the desired step size.
I've looked through the PDF, I've looked at the control head
when in VFO mode, looked at the buttons on the microphone, but
cannot figure this one out. Fifteen years, and I don't know
where the STEP button is? H'mmm.
Thanks in advance.
