When spots don't make it into the spots window it is a matter of the
clock not running on UTC in 99% of the cases. The spots time out in 30

The ctrl-G feature only works in the spots and bandmap/needed windows,
and as there is nothing in the spots window....

We have had that in other radios.... there is a CW bandwidth command, I
forgot whay it is, and it has not been tested with a FT1000; you have to
do some digging...

As far as I know, only VFO A is supported in tlf.

I use Xlog for casual DX and qsl labels, it imports tlf files.
