      HI Alex,

      In the log, I see this when I go into TX:

      22:57:03.098 RIG1 status changed: pmTx enabled

      22:57:03.098 RIG1 data sent
      22:57:03.098 RIG1 data sent

      and on return to RX:

      I'm not sure what exactly "pmVfoAB" signifies, but seems to always be
      "enabled", so it still seems to be the TX status that causes Skimmer to jump
      the the VFO B frequency... ?
