You're welcome, and thanks George.

More K3 scripts will be added in the future, including methods to program
the K3DVR (like Shift-F1), put both ears on the SubRx, enable RX Ant,
Diversity, etc.  It's really nice that the K3 command set allows so much
control of the radio (unlike Icom).

Some of the scripts can be used unmodified with the Kenwood TS-590 as well.
