I have recently acquired an FT-1000MP.  Having used it in the WAE CW 
contest, I have noticed a rather significant glitch while using it 
with CT:

For the band map and most (if not all) of the functions where CT 
reads the radio's VFO frequency, the clarifier must either be OFF or 
reset to 0.00.  Otherwise, CT reads very erroneous data from the 
radio.  This affects the band map, putting out packet spots, grabbing 
packet spots (if you hadn't cleared the clarifier, when you did the 
second Alt-F4, you end up in space somewhere, wondering what 
happened), etc.

I have tried this with 9.27 and 9.30 with the same results.  Can 
anyone confirm that this is a quirk of CT and not the result of some 
menu setting chosen improperly by me?

Thanks in advance.
