Fine Analyse of the SO2R needs !!

I can suggest to swap freq above the network, not only between the two local 
radios, useful when u have 2nd RX ( support ) station am same band and move 
quickly the Runner to the new freq.

> c. Linked TX.  A transmission on one radio will be queued up to
> begin upon completion of an ongoing transmission on another radio.
> 2.  Frequency Grab Variable - Add a message variable that inserts the
> frequency of any specified radio on the network, including multiple radios
> on one computer, i.e., one-computer SO2R.  The frequency should be

> frequency.
> If the QSY frequency is already a run frequency, then this frees the
> operator of having to either send the QSY message manually or stop and
> insert it into a QSY message.
> 3.  Multiple RTTY Windows per Radio - Provide for multiple RTTY windows so
> that parallel decoding can be done with different decoders, e.g., hardware
> TNC and software decoder, as well as multiple instances of the same 
> decoder
> with different decoder algorithms configured.  An example of the latter

> lost manually switching between profiles while receiving.  Only one of the
> decoders or instances should be the RTTY TX encoder, while all the others
> are read only (decode).
> 4.  I think the following three are already captured on the request list:
> a. F8-F12 Messages - Allow F8-F12 to be arbitrarily programmed by
> the user like F1-F7, although the defaults can be the current CT
> definitions.
> b. Clear RIT Message Variable - Add a $CLEARRIT message variable.
> c. CQP Support - Add support for this state QSO party, by far the
> largest QSO party in the US.
