Unfortunately, they seem to be coupled.
And encoder resolution on Orion is rather poor:
* VFO encoder ~64/256 steps per revolution,
compared to ~250/1000 on F1000MP
* RIT encoder ~10/40 steps per revolution,
compared to ~25/100 on F1000MP
Linked with slow synthesizer update, this makes Orion a poor
choice for band scanning during contests.
