I cut the diode in my IC725, and the rig no longer uses 'transceive 
mode' to broadcast frequency changes on the CI-V bus. With polling 
set to 300 ms, the freq. display in XLOG updates within 1 s. No more 
bus errors, and the GUI is still nicely responsive. This is a great 

I am going to put the diode back in (the manufacturer's default), and 
try it with XLOG polling 'off' to see how that works.  I am keen to 
go back to the 'transceive mode' default, so I can still use the rig 
with CT if I have to.

I am wondering what resolution the pixmap is? It didn't display 
properly on my old laptop (800x600 pixels). Anyway, it's no big 
deal..my rig doesn't transmit S-meter info.

A suggestion: when I make a QSO, I type in the call, and fill in the 
fields with ctrl-k. Then I log the QSO with ctrl-a. For the next QSO, 
I must first use the mouse to click on the callsign field in order to 
select it.

Would it be possible to make the cursor stay in the callsign field 
(or, more generally, in whatever field it was in) following ctrl-a?

This would speed up rapid-fire logging considerably.

Anyway, I must say, I am suitably impressed with this release. It's 
pretty slick.
