For anyone that has a 910 and satpc32, here is a chat I had with DK1TB.

Hi Charles,
at present SatPC32 can't switch the IC-910H to FMN. The manual mentions only a CAT  command for FM (cmd 4), but no command for FMN.

Meanwhile I know that there are undocumented commands that switch the IC-910H to FMN (cmd 5 sub cmd 2. I have just tested that and it works (with the IC-821H and other Icom radios this command doesn't work at all). 

So, I think, I can modify the program with the next update and include the special FMN  command for the IC-910H. 

73s, Erich, DK1TB

  Im am learning the ins and outs of your fine program, but I have run into a stumbling block...
  I have an Icom IC-910h connected via a rigblaster PNP.
  My  file entry for ISS voice mode reads as follows:

  ISS,145800,437800,FM,FMN,NOR,0,0,Cross band repeater

  The sub band refuses to go to Narrow mode. If I turn off CAT I can manually enter the sub band and press and hold the FM button to enter Narrow mode but this gets reset to FM on the next tune cycle.

  I have also tried setting both bands to FMN, without sucess.

  Is your program capable of setting this mode on my Icom?
  I am using version 12.6
