It turned out to be a "cockpit error" as I suspected in the first 
place--I had incorrectly set the serial port speed.

Now that it is working, I notice that there are occasional hamlib 
errors, but that is not an Xlog problem.  The backend for the TS-570D is 
listed as "untested".

I also noticed that if I set Xlog to round the frequency to 5 
characters, it rounds to three characters.  Setting to 4 characters 
works correctly.

Thanks for the support.
