[WT-support] Radio 1 Window in WT4.5.0

I don't recall seeing any reports like this before.

Are you using a USB-to-Serial adapter?  If so, and if that adapter is based
on the "Prolific" chipset, perhaps that is the problem.  These devices are
notoriously unreliable.  Perhaps new drivers will help, or a new
USB-to-Serial interface based on the FTDI chipset.

Also, what was happening on VFO B at the time?

I assume that you are using the Win-Test FT-1000MP defaults: 4800,N,8,2
DTR/RTS = Always OFF.
