         Yes, I said that.  But *if you have a Sub RX*,
you cannot then use it to tune around.  If you can
assign the Main RX RIT to the Main VFO knob, then
you *can* simultaneously use the Sub VFO RX to tune
around while using the large Main knob for your
Main RX (with TX locked to your run frequency).

         Elecraft understands the issue and said they
would "add it to their list" of features to consider.
