I found that ESC would clear the loaded-up second radio call (even without
opening the Alt-D window).
The display of the loaded-up call would sometimes disappear, even if it
wasn't a dupe.
I love that the second radio CW speed display now updates with Ctrl-Pg Up/Pg

I noted the same thing - if you use Alt-D, then fail to work the
station, the next time you use Alt-D his call is still in the window and
anything you type is appended to it.
If you succeed in working the station, the next time you use Alt-D the
window is clear. I *believe* there were other circumstances (band
changes?) under which the contents of the Alt-D window would clear
without working the station.
This is definitely a change in behavior from previous versions.
I wonder whether it might be better to provide a keystroke to clear the
Alt-D memory rather than changing this behavior? I know more than once
in the past I've Alt-D'd a station, failed to work him, worked a few
folks on radio 1, and then Alt-D'd the same station again. Having him
still in the window could be handy, provided I could quickly clear the
window if I was trying to Alt-D someone else. Maybe have the backspace
key clear the entire contents of the Alt-D window? (not just the last
Otherwise... it worked beautifully. I especially enjoy having both
radios' frequency displays - I had FAR less grief with not realizing
which rig was active, rarely needed the big LEDs wired to the parallel
Can we have a "MINIMUM LIGHTNING DISTANCE=" command for the next
version? I think a default value of 10 miles (if you have a W call) or
15km (if you're DX) would be appropriate. If it'd worked this time I'd
have had another two hours of operating time & made another 15k points
