The key word here is "RUNNING."  Nothing worse than seeing someone with
"Spot all S&P QSOs" turned on when they are actually running a frequency
(Pro tip:  You should be in Run mode then.)  Dozens of mults that aren't
really there piled up in the band map on top of each other, so then I have
to block the spotter to keep the bandmap and the mult window clear.
