The "point and shoot" (as Dan calls "jump into") works for the Announcement 
Window (Alt-A) and for the Band Map when it is not in the "frequency 
centered" display, but rather in the "start at the bottom of the band" (for 
lack of a better term) display.

Coding point and shoot into the frequency centered display is a programming 
quagmire.  I suppose it could be undertaken, but we've not really found the 
need here.  Most of the ops here point and shoot from the announcements 
window.  We've found the frequency centered band map to be most useful 
avoiding dupes not signing their calls.

There are advantages to both types of band maps which have been discussed here.
