G'day Dan,

Thanks for b5.

Some initial testing with the IC-92AD on Win XP.

Name next to the Bank, in the Bank Tab, the Bank dropped to the end of
the list, requiring a manual re-sort.

Also, when I selected the list of Banks in the drop down menu of the
Memory screen it displayed them as "A-", "B-", etc. I wasn't sure if it
was meant to display the Bank and the Bank Name or if the "-" was an

I'll try to do some more testing a bit later today.

memories or do you want to leave that till a later version?

Thanks again,
