Mark, it actually AFC and there is an option to turn AFC on/off depending on 
whether or not there is a callsign in the CALL field of the Entry Window.

In the Rttyrite window, go to the TU Type menu and select TNC Setup. Uncheck 
"AFC on/off w/CALL". Also, if you want manual control of AFC, go to the MMTTY 
control panel to the Option menu, select Setup. Go to the AFC/ATC/PLL tab 
screen and uncheck AFC. Click OK, then on the MMTTY control panel, click the 
HAM button to put the Mark frequency back to where it should be.

You want AFC enabled when running (CQ) and disabled when S&P. You should not be 
able to manually check and uncheck the AFC button on the control panel to turn 
it on and off as needed. When turning AFC off, always remember to reset the 
Mark frequency by pressing the HAM button.
