      Further testing seems to show that the power output from the radio
      as indicated by its own indicator is fairly constant, while that
      indicated by flrig is oscillating between the set output level and
      a very low level. It doesn't depend on port audio versus pulse
      audio. It doesn't depend on using flrig for rig control - I tried
      switching to RigCAT, and with flrig running it shows the power
      level oscillation.

      Also tried it with MultiPSK as the digital program, using the PTT
      button on flrig to get it to transmit - same results.

      Switched the baud rate from 19.2K to 9.6K and the oscillation is
      still there but the depth of the oscillation is greatly diminished.
      Changing to 4.8K doesn't appear much different from 9.6K

      Conclusion - there's something funny about the way the radio reports
      power related to the COM port speed. For now, 9600 baud is
      preferable to 19.2K
