Yes, only presets can be used in the R-828, same as the KA50.

For VHF homing, use the ARK-UD on any of its 6 preset channels (found in ...Mods\aircraft\Mi-8MTV2\Cockpit\Scripts\Devices_specs\Radio\ARC UD.lua)

For FM homing (R82, set the R828 function to compass and follow the bearing indicator on the HSI.

Maybe i'm just misunderstanding you, do you only want to tune in a frequency to communicate with an unit or do you want to communicate on frequency xxx with unit 1 which tells you frequency yyy to home in on unit 2? Tuning in a frequency "on the fly" for communication is done like already described, see picture. But if you want to tune in a frequency for homing in on a unit(getting a direction to the unit) you can use the ARK-9 for this BUT you can't use the frequency 40.50MHz FM only between 0.100 and 1.300MHz AM/FM. For that case see the little quick and dirty video attached. If you are talking about none of this cases just ignore me because i got it all totally wrong then.
