That solution needs an installation to the PC which I don't own.  I might
not allow someone to install a software on my PC for security reason.  The
bottom line is that the PC owner does not need to worry about this point.
I have no experience with AHK, but is it possible to revert (clear) the
setting immediately?  The situation happens when operator is changed.

I might have mislead.  For my case, I'd want to clear RIT by hitting
a shortcut.  But as far as I know, RIT clear can be done by writing a
macro to the message for some logging software.  For the radios which
have no capability of RIT clear, like Icom, I realized with the device
by reverting RIT offset to zero examining current RIT offset over CI-V.
