That's very strange.  On the TS-480, just keying in a
frequency will cause it to flip bands without having
to use the band selection buttons.  I was rereading
the manual on the Sky Command system but nothing seems
to indicate band switching.

The zero key works just fine as a space on my D700 as
do the rest of the keys for text input.  Try enabling
the Microphone DTMF monitor option (menu 1-8-6).  As
for delete on the D700, that's a soft key specifically
the second soft key from the left (in order they are
Backup (AKA cancel), Delete, left arrow, right arrow,
Insert, OK, and the left volume knob is Clear (push
the knob).
