hamlib or WSJT-x. I don't have the insight into the code. If it
was a "bug", it was a good bug. And it have always been there. It
was convenient to switch band from WSJT-x but now it's not. I have
now programmed my rig and do the change from that one instead.

One version 2.5.0 rc 5 (latest) it does not. You can change
bands with WSJT-X and the radio follows, but the Expert doesn't
change bands. To action that one need to turn the VFO on the

For the developers : I think what is happening is that in the
past the rig was commanded to reply with the QRG once it it was

I'm not sure what you and others with similar issues expect the
WSJT-X developers to do. We make no statements on CAT control of
ancillary devices that might be connected to your rig. If WSJT-X
is correctly setting the rig frequency, and optionally the mode,
and WSJT-X is able to read the rig frequency, which it does each
polling interval, then CAT control is working as designed. Perhaps
you need to contact the support team for your PA and ask how this
might be happening.
You might also try a different "Settings->Radio->Split
Operating" option as the Tx VFO being used might have some
