[WT-support] FT-100D - WT Band fluctuations

According to some eham.net reviews <http://www.eham.net/reviews/detail/5748>,
the RIGTalk USB interrface uses the Prolific chipset, which is known not to
work well with many programs, including Win-Test.

You *may* have better luck setting Radio type to OmniRig, or by setting the
polling rate to 500 ms rather than "Auto," but instead I strongly recommend
using a completely different USB-to-Serial adapter, one based on the FTDI
or Eltima chipsets, not Prolific.

A good choice would be the Keyspan
