Are the flex USB bcd band selections adjustable as dutil allows?

I have a need to allow the 15 meter band amplifier's LPF selection to coincide with the 10 meter band. With ddutil this is possible by entering change in .xml file. I would like to use my flex 6500 for my amplifier's band selection if possible. My amplifier is one that I built - blf188xr dual, W6PQL design with bcd-14 auto board for bandswitch following.

Thanks and 73's

Missed this question -- sorry about that.  We decided that most things implement the Yaesu BCD output so this is what we did.  We worked out how VHF and up will work with K3TUF.  We discussed making it fully configurable, but it just felt we'd create a number of screens and settings that would be confusing to most folks.  Anyway, you can use the BIT side of the equation to do whatever you want. You will use more BITs because there is no BCD encoding, but it should do whatever you want otherwise.  If you're looking for peripherals to read the BCD output and do things, I would suggest that K3TUF is an excellent resource.  If I've missed the question somehow, let me know.
