[TRLog] Shift Keys, frequency changes, the switch to CQ mode

Recently, I discovered that the shift keys would change the frequency in S&P
mode on my FT-900. (one of the cool features of TR is there is always
something else to discover!) So, I decided to experiment with the feature
during the NAQP to see if I liked it. I ran into a operating problem with
the feature turned on though.

Because I'm a bit too liberal with the use of the escape key, I turn off the
feature where escape returns TR to CQ mode. I used to jump from S&P mode to
CQ mode when I did not want to. But, with the shift keys to change frequency
feature turned on, the radio changes frequencies while I'm trying to go from
S&P to CQ mode (the shift-tab command). That kind of messes up the run
frequency that I just discovered.

Is there a third way to go from S&P to CQ mode? If not, I can adjust my
operating habits, there is no need to change the program. Also, I'm still
experimenting with the frequency change feature and long term may not use it
