Is it possible to configure a external mic, specifically, a Icom HM-75LS, to switch between the two VFOs when pressing a button on an Icon ID-51 Plus2?

■ Optional HM-75LS

The optional HM-75LS allows you to remotely select operating frequencies, memory channels, etc.

Remote control functions can be selected from three settings. These can be selected with "MIC Simple Mode" in the FUNCTION menu.

MENU ➪ FUNCTION ➪ MIC Simple Mode (p. 44)

The HM-75LS has a lock switch on the backside to prevent accidental frequency changes, and so on.

Be sure to turn power OFF when plugging or unplugging the HM-75LS to and from the [SP/MIC] jack.

  • SIMPLE:
    [A]Toggles the Monitor function
    [B]Turns the Call channel mode
    [p] Select memory channel 0
    [q] Select memory channel 1
  • NORM-1: (default)
    [A]Selects the Call channel mode
    [B]Toggles the VFO mode and Memory mode
    [p] Frequency or memory channel 'UP'
    [q] Frequency or memory channel 'DOWN'
  • NORM-2:
    [A]Turns the Monitor function
    [B]Toggles the VFO mode and Memory mode
    [p] Frequency or memory channel 'UP'
    [q] Frequency or memory channel 'DOWN'

The SIMPLE mode can select only three channels, and is useful for group operations during touring, and so on.

The VFO mode cannot be selected from the microphone when Simple mode is selected.

It appears that it can change the VFO mode in the normal-2 mike mode but I did not see that it can change to the other VFO. I did not see any way to program it differently. There may be a method that I am not aware of but I doubt it.
