CT always grabs the info from whatever line the cursor is on...best thing
to do is to pass or announce before logging the Q...otherwise just up arrow
to the right one.  Nice idea to have it band selective, tho!

Some people wouldnt want that...if you dont have a radio interface and you
are running, you can type your freq in on the callsign block and it will
change  the Alt J window display.  If not running on the band, type in the
band edge freq as an indicator.  If running more than one computer per band,
the extra ones should all use -nf in the command line so that their freq
is not announced on the network... otherwise you end up with oscillating
freq's in the AltJ window.  Use the PASSFREQ command for the second computer
/second radio if needed.

Using a mouse, you can move any and all of the info boxes around on the screen
to any configuration you want...they can overlap, layer,etc.  Give it a try!
Once you've got it configured the way you want...you can disconnect the mouse
if you need the port for networking or whatever...
You should be able to toggle the summary window on and off...Alt S.
