Re: Frequency error IC 706MK2

With v 2.2.2 (or probably hamlib <again>), there is a problem
moving across any 100 MHz "barrier."

If the IC-706mkIIg is operating below 100 MHz and one selects
a frequency/band above 100MHz, the rig will go to a frequency
below 100 MHz (missing the first digit, i.e., 144.170 -> 44.174
or 432.065 -> 32.065).

If one is operating on two meters and selects a frequency on
432, the rig will go to 1xx MHz (e.g. 432.065 -> 132.065).

If one is operating on 432 and selects a frequency on 144, the
rig will go to 4xx MHz (e.g. 144.170 -> 444.170).

If one is operating on 432 and selects a frequency on HF/6M,
the rig will go to 4xx MHz (e.g. 14.074 -> 414.074)

The issue is not resent with 2.1.2 (presumably the version of
hamlib included therein).

Hi
I update wsjt-x to v2.2.2 from v2.1.2. All worked fine until I changed frequency to 144.174 MHz in FT8. The display on the radio shows 44.174, missing the 1.
I tried delete the post in “Frequencies” and retype the frequency (144.174.000). I checked CAT settings. But the problem is the same.
Reinstalled v2.1.2 and all is OK again. Anyone else discovered this?
