Point makes sense.

I have two D700's and have not yet seen or read anything on the 710 only that I know they second vfo can be qsy'd to an object broadcasting a freq.


Question, which line does the D710 recognize when pressing this "Tune" button

Do I replace the

HFEST-19 or the

Su JUL 19 line with the talk-in freq


By first text I think yu mean 

Su JUL 19 line should be replaced.


Also what about adding the PL?  Is that recognised as well or does the op have to manually change the PL?
