Correct.  I forgot that the original poster was asking abut u2R not

So does that imply that with the MK2R/MK2R+, you *can* select Classic Auto
Control *and* send microHAM control protocol commands for ACC port control?
 I'll have to test it, but I am not sure if Win-Test will support Classic
Auto Control *and* microHAM ACC port commands at the same time.

In Win-Test, you have to select the microHAM control port if you want to
send any microHAM commands via LUA scripts or the WKSETUP band boxes
(othwerwise it doesn't know which COM port to use).  And if you select a
microHAM control port in Win-Test, it may stop sending any TX/RX focus
commands via COM port or LPT port pins.  I think Win-Test assumes you want
to use nothing but the microHAM control protocol for SO2R switching.  So in
Win-Test it may not be possible to do TX/RX switching with COM or LPT pins
*and* control the ACC port at the same time.
