Summary0000562: HRD rig control, "ALT" button does not work with Kenwood TS-2000
DescriptionThe "ALT" button on the TS-2000 rig control screen does not do anything. It should lock the tuning of the TS-2000 where you can NOT change frequency. The same as pressing "FUNC" then "ATT" keys on the front panel of the TS-2000.
Steps To ReproduceJust click on the "ALT" button and see is does not work.
Additional InformationThe command for this function is LK11; I have checked this with the CAT Command Tester and it works. The command to turn this off is LK01; which also works with the command tester. Now making this button press ON, press OFF is up to the programmers. If that is not possible then there would need to be a "ALT OFF" button programmed for the TS-2000 and I assume some other Kenwood rig setups.

The claims made in this issue aren't correct; the bug reporter is confusing two features. A third feature is involved in the fix.

The "ALT" button doesn't lock anything, though it stands for "Auto Lock Tuning". (Page 72 of the manual.) ALT is used on the 1.2 GHz band to auto-tune signals from radios that aren't so stable. This doesn't lock tuning. This looks like it's correctly wired-up; the commands are LT1 (on) and LT0 (off).

From the manual (page 77) FUNC + ATT on the front panel of the radio puts the radio into frequency lock mode. That locks only the frequency (VFO), not The CAT command for that is LK10 (on) and LK00 (off)

Page 77 also explains that FUNC + PRE on the radio will make lock all mode. That locks everything; VFO and all the other mode buttons are locked. CAT for this is LK20 (on) and LK00 (off).

This issue asks for a lock function, and that is missing. I've added "LockA" and "LockF" buttons. The ATT feature works correctly are doesn't need to be changed.
