Thanks Jim for entertaining and working on the new and undiscovered 
application!

The GM300 series of radios will do channel-steering, by using a BCD 
design of up to five bits to select between 32 modes. I don't recall if 
the Maxtrac's will do that, but its certainly something that could be 
linked back into a macro, etc.
