Do you know the mode data for the CW-Narrow? In the Icom CI-V reference 
manual I have here, the code is 03 for CW for all Icoms. There is 
nothing about Wide and Narrow CW. Is it only available on the 765?

This is because the Icom protocol does not tell the software when the 
active VFO is changed on the radio. This is why, is WT, the "active VFO" 
is always "VFO A" regardless of the real active VFO on the radio.

Same reason.

Thanks for your help,
