I've already fixed it, and it's in the version you downloaded with the
dialog box.  Did that not make it work?

Cool.

Because on radios with 1200 memories, the processing and display can get
a little slow.  With the new preference store I just added to track your
dialog box, I will be able to make it remember the last used value.

You're right, my patch for that is queued behind something else that
isn't in the tree yet.  I'll be there soon :)

This looks the same as the other issue you pointed out.  I'm working on
getting an F6A to borrow so I can try to reproduce this.

Hmm, that looks *very* strange.  What kind of USB adapter is it?  Do you
use it for other things successfully?
