[ct-user] QSX Reversed

If you had "just finished" transmitting and tried ALT-F3 it gets screwed up
just as if you had hit ALT-F3 WHILE transmitting.  You have to wait a bit.

Once the reverse/incorrect data is loaded (ALT-F3) into CT incorrectly, it's
hard to clear it. Subsequent ALT-F3s do not "get" the correct data, either.
I can only think this happens because I suspect CT doesn't actually "ask"
for the frequencies; instead the radio knows to "tell" CT the frequencies
whenever the radio changes.  Since the two VFOs haven't changed since the
first ALT-F3 (after all, the radio has been "correct" all along), there's
been no reason for the radio to update CT.  At this point, "ESC" out of the
ALT-F3, then tune the radio just a touch (on both VFOs). Something like that
seems to reload what gets subsequently ALT-F3'd.
