Title: My current bug list in Android Client
Post by: ve2aed on May 14, 2018, 01:37:54 pm
Running an IC7851 and thought I'd mention some annoyances that could certanly make RCforb more fluid
1) starting RCforb client it does not read all radio data , for example last band the radio was left on was 20 meters however Client button always shows 160 meters
2)Changing band always stays in the last mode ,for example I'm on 40m LSB ,changing to 20 meters still on LSB , should read radio and display it rather than changing radio to LSB on 20m

I plan to look for any additional anomalies .

Regarding the band dropdown, it was meant to just be a setting band control, not reading the band. Maybe it should be changed.

As to the mode not changing when changing bands with that control, that is an Icom issue. When you send a new frequency to an Icom it only sets the frequency on the radio. Icom radios don't change or remember modes when you change frequency. It's just the way Icom radio's are.
