Task #365 — Pass frequency to SUB VFO (Alt-Double-Click) is being disabled for radio type OmniRig

Bandmaps wnd (Alt-1/2)

WT 4.17

  1. In configuration menu, set radio type to OmniRig
  2. Right click on band map window, select OmniRig Settings
  3. Select a radio with independent control of VFO A and B, such the Elecraft K3
  4. Verify that both VFO frequencies are properly displayed in the band map window, tracking the radio
  5. Right click on a cluster spot
  6. Bug: "Pass frequency to SUB VFO" is disabled (grayed out). Alt-Double-Click doesn't do anything either.

If the OmniRig connection supports a pmFreqB command to set the frequency of the Sub VFO, then there should be no reason for this useful feature to be disabled. The sample OmniRig client program is able to determine if setting VFO B frequency is available or not. Can Win-Test do the same, and only disable the option when necessary?

I was able to create a new OmniRig file for newer Icom radios that supported the pmFreqB commands, and works fine with the sample OmniRig Client, but, like the K3.INI file, Win-Test seems to block ALL OmniRig clients from using this feature, which doesn't seem fair.
