KM9M commented on the idea of having logging programs try to stop us from
transmitting on the wrong VFO:

I don't know about these...... Why not have the computer power up the station, you close the door,leave the house for the weekend, and 48 hrs later look and see how your computer/software did in the contest? I think we'd be better off knowing the rigs we're using.. The hobby is getting a little "too software" dependent! IMHO

I agree that things in general may be getting a little too dependent, but this actually
is a good idea & would be quite helpful in the heat of the battle or when one is
knackered - which is probably a contributing factor to accidental out-of-band
transmissions where split is often used - the lower bands, which are largely night
time bands.
