I have no meters on the upper right side of the display. Maybe you meant "upper left" instead. The meters on the upper left part of the rig control radio view were not working for me against this radio, and I have fixed them.

If I've got the wrong meters, please clarify your report so I can investigate the problem you're experiencing.

Fixed as described with this checkin:

Was the customer's report about 840 or 480? Confused.

I can't test these. We may need to have that customer try this.

Comments by Dan Schaaf (K3ZXL):

The meters in the upper left of RC work fine. But they are limited. Only 3 fixed meter labels. ALC, SWR and PWR
However, the S Meter Below VFO A works ok in receive as an S Meter should.
But, there is a slider called Meter and as you slide it, you can select more than those 3 labels that are shown in upper left.
Now, when that slider is moved to a different parameter, the actual radio meter changes accordingly.
But, the meter below the VFO in Rig Control does not change . It always reads SWR.

The meter slider controls the meter type that's shown on the front panel of the radio. If we want the enhancement of configuring the meters on the top left of the radio view, then a separate issue should be opened. That work would affect all radios, not just the FT-991, and need to be carefully planned. Some radios provide no meters, some provide more than are available for the FT-991.

I was able to sort this out and test it today. The other comment could be a future enhancement.
