.... see "SECTION 2.04: AUTO-PILOT MODE CONTROL PANEL within the above linked manual.
NAV1 is located on the left/captain side of the AP MCP.
NAV2 is located on the right/FO side of the AP MCP .... the FO main panel must be commanded into view first by left mouse clicking (on the silent hot spot) inside the bottom of the centre windshield support post.
Thank you for your response. The info provided did not cure the problem. I had earlier read the handling notes and was aware of the clicking protocol. In my case the 'course change' numbers responds correctly in both NAV1 and NAV2, but the frequency changes do not. Just for info my / your DC9 works perfectly

I'm not aware of any issues/problems associated with either NAV1/NAV2 frequency selections .... and I was using the DC-10 panels as recently as yesterday during an a navigational and PR excercize.
When making NAV1/NAV2 frequency selections I presume you are mouse clicking as follows ....
left mouse click on left rim to reduce 3-digit prefix .... left mouse click of right rim to raise 3-digit prefix .... left mouse click inside left centre rim to reduce 2-digit suffix .... left mouse click inside left centre rim to reduce 2-digit suffix
Check that you have the the RADIO and FD CMD switches (on the OH sub panel) set correctly when using either NAV1 or NAV2.
No point in making comparisons with the DC-9.
We really need "more descriptive information" from you .... in regard to precisely what your doing to make your selections.

The DC-10 panel's NAV1 and NAV2 frequency selectors use the default MSFS click events (no fancy coding there), and the only way I was able to make those frequencies unmodifiable was by setting the radio in question as "failed" in FS9's failures window.
Even shutting down all the engines (and thus inducing a complete power failure) did not prevent the NAV1/NAV2 frequencies from being changed.
Thanks everybody. I guess that there is some problem within my FS9, because in my version of the HJG DC10 every-other switch and button works correctly except the NAV 1 and NAV2 frequency change. The plus and minus signs appear but do not respond to my mouse clicks. Weird! If I choose any-other aircraft and change NAV frequencies no problem, but on returning to the DC10 those changed frequencies will now display but still cannot be changed as previously described. I also double checked the 'failures' window, just to be certain.

"SQDNLDR" .... just as a matter of "curiosity" what happens if you load a default MSFS stock aircraft into FS first .... let it stabilize .... THEN .... select your DC-10 and associated panel of choice and within the same FS session ?
Try that and see if it gets around your current radio frequencies dilemma.
Other than trying that .... Have you made any adjustments within FS that might affect/implicate radio frequencies .... and radio navigation ?
I can only reconfirm that I'm not experiencing any such issues changing either frequency, but, nor should anyone else either.
Yep! I tried loading a default A/C then loading DC10-30 but same result. I can't remember making any alterations to FS9. I even tried taking out my CLS version of the DC10, but that didn't solve the problem. The only issue with my FS9 is the HJG DC10-30. That is why I mentioned earlier about the HJG DC9, and also the HJG Tristar which both work brilliantly. Maurice

Try this: before loading the DC10, turn on the Avionics switch on the C172. I have the same issue and George thought he solved it in the code behind the scenes. It worked for me, but apparently not for you.
I suspect it's a gauge we both have from some other panel causing the issue. I have the problem with many random planes. Again, the solution is to turn on the avionics switch in the C172 before loading the DC10.

Have you checked your "Radio " section in the aircraft cfg
Nothing wrong with the RADIOS data Herman .... or everyone would have the same issue.
It seems to be something unique to Maurice's system/installation .... possibly something interfering with the DC-10 panels radios, but, why this (whatever it is) should pick on the DC-10's only, and not the Dc-9's and L-1011's, is the disappointing issue we have to try'n pin-point.
Maurice .... what happens on some systems can be unique to that system/installation and not universally experienced .... of course .... and such events are incredibly rare, and as such, difficult to identify precisely.
Bear with us please as we examine the possibilities as to why you're apparently being affected in this way.

This's probably a silly/unnecessary suggestion .... other than it being at least one possibility that needs to be eliminated.
Maurice .... when you installed your DC-10-30 you didn't add the new panel/s and gauges core files to our old/original DC-10 release .... buy any chance ?
I just want to check/eliminate this possibility.
If anyone has had the old/original HJG DC-10 aircraft base packs/FDE/3D models, panels, gauges/core files, and sound packs installed .... then these all need to be "dumped" (retain the textures and their supporting FLTSIM.XX data only though) .... and replaced with the new/latest aircraft base packs/FDE/3D models, panels, gauges/core files, and sound packs.
Thank you all for your suggestions. I did not load the old HJG DC10 as it was not on display and I've never had the old version on my PC. I am running FS2004, as it's the one I prefer, on Windows XP SP2. I have tried both events of loading C172 with radios off and on. The problem does now seem to point to my PC, although I can change NAV frequencies of the DC10 via another aircraft, which is not very convenient. I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the DC10. Maurice
