WSJT-X always requests a mode change
with no change in the filter settings. I know this is somewhat
problematic with some Icom rigs that do not allow reading the
filter settings on the SPLIT Tx VFO without swapping VFOs. Perhaps
those that want to use the Icom default filter settings and can't
be bothered to customize them as needed should be forced to put up
with VFO swapping when changing modes in SPLIT, so Hamlib can read
the current filter settings and honour the RIG_PASSBAND_NOCHANGE
option by reading the current value to reuse just before setting
Note that WSJT-X always requests a mode
switch (possible redundant) when setting the frequency, this will
not change as it copes well with inadvertent operator mode changes
via the front panel.

I've gone back and forth
with Icom several times....
Their default mode is
filter 2 and I used to force it to filter 1. I changed
hamlib to let the rig default to whatever it wants and if
Icom ever fixes that (not holding my breath) so that the
filter follows the band stack then everybody will be happy.
Meanwhile you need to set
filter 2 to your data mode wide filter.
My other choice is to do
same as FLRig and "remember" whatever filter you select but
hamlib currently doesn't try to remember anything so would
be a significant change to having hamlib save a config file.

Hi Bill, well just about there.
the usb-d mode is now selected going into wsjtx
however the rig is put into filter 2 which really
narrows the field of view
additionally it leaves the USB mode in filter#2 as
version 24 does as I found out yesterday (below)
Running version 24 I never realized it (originally
thought it had been previously set by me) but although
it starts up just fine with usb-d mode & filter set
at #1, when I exit and manually switch back out of data
mode, whatever band was selected with wsjt-x is left in
filter #2 even though wsjt-x ran in data mode with the
filter set to filter #1.
In other words, with wsjtx exited, manually switching to
usb mode the filter is now filter #2. Manually switching
back to data mode shows filter #1 (good)
I dont know if the data mode ON cmd $FEFE7cE01A060101FD could
be inserted into the 9100 configuration
Different program but I have do this with mmsstv radio
commands for each bands then I deselect, put mode back
to USB with filter untouched: $FEFE7cE01A060000FD
From the manual pg 193:
I wonder if there is somewhere in the wsjtx files where
I could insert these command strings
tnx Bob VE3CGA
