I know it's a little thing but...

When I call up KRNT info page and select tower and hit "tune COMM", it sets up 124.7 on the radio.  It also says "KRNT 124.700 TWR" in blue indicating standby.  All good.  Then I hit SWAP and make it active and then, the top banner shows "W36 124.700 MCOM".  Well, it is technically correct since the tower frequency and the CTAF on the seaplane port is the same. 

It would be nice, though, since I did pick the KRNT TWR, the banner showed "KRNT 124,700 TWR" instead.

Not sure if the database is encrypted but if it isn't, could you go in and change the W36 entry yourself? Doing that will only affect the seaplane pilots and I can't imagine it'd be a big issue!

Interesting. I'm surprised we haven't noticed this behavior ourselves (many of us fly here at Dynon fly out of KPAE just to the north). Will put this on a list to look into.

Have you happened to notice how it behaves if you load the whole airport to the COM (via either the APT>COMM button in the menu or by using the com panel APT button to select KRNT?

Well, that is the repro steps.  Hit NRST, select KRNT, select Tower, then hit Tune Com on the soft key.
Note that the STBY will change to "KRNT 124.700 TWR".

Now, tap on the top banner, then hit Swap with the 10-key displayed on screen.

Now observe the active side is changed to W36...

I have not tried what it would do if I manually tuned the radio to 124.70 the old fashion knob-twisting way.

I select NRST from the Dynon radio itself and select the assigned frequency (TWR, GND, etc) from the radio buttons.

Have you tried it this way or do you not have a Dynon Radio?

I do not have Dynon radio.  I have SL40 and CNX80.  SL40 is connected through serial connection with HDX.  CNX80 is connected through ARINC interface.
