An essential part of this new HRD software is the ability to run a remote 
station - mainly EME but also given that the ERP is about 400KW (!) on some 
bands we could also melt the odd unsuspecting satellite :-).

This is a technology preview - the aim being to continue to refine this 
software over the next years. Almost exactly 3 months' work.

I think I'm right in saying that you can't change the FT-8x7 frequency while 
the radio is in TX mode.
