F12 will do it - it may be an undocumented feature :-)  I
haven't checked the manual.

Thanks, I'm working on it.  If you download SD.EXE V14.26b
from, you see that the Quick Memory
window has changed and is starting to look like a Band Map -
although it is early days yet.

I expect to be able to pull down a callsign, but only if
the callsign field is blank - otherwise rig control is
temporarily disabled at present.

clearing a call is Esc.  A "tune of the dial" may not
be possible initially - since rig control is disabled
when the callsign field is not blank.
