Thank you for your suggestions I will try them but my main concern was that
I was sure that I had the tone set but was still unable to access the bird
and wondered if I had not set the tone properly. I have just acquired the
ic- 910 I have been using an ic-820H and was not sure if I had set the tone
properly. The 820 worked with SatPC32 seamlessly but I had to set the 910
to go to satellite mode so I wasn't sure if I was setting the 910 properly.
Or if there was something that I had to do. The 910 works with all other
birds fine just not SO50.
