I am glad the improved band map is generally working very well for everyone. 
There are plans for further improvements as well. I have a few comments on the 
current release.

With the release of 6.64 there was a restructuring of the data in the band 
map. This made BANDMAP.BIN from 6.63 and earlier incompatible with 6.64 and 
beyond. It would also be a good idea to delete RESTART.BIN as well before 
running a new version. I have seen strange behaviors when firing up with an 
older RESTART.BIN. The mults won't dim falls into this category. I recommend 
erasing both RESTART.BIN and BANDMAP.BIN from the current directory before 
using version 6.64.

Udo, DL2ZAV, discovered the temporary work around for a bug in the band map 
where WARC entries are not displayed unless VHFBandsEnabled is set to true. 
This will be fixed in the next release. There is also a report of not being 
able to load a WARC entry into the band map from the call window. This is 
being investigated and will also be fixed when found.

BTW Has anyone tried SBDVP with 6.64? For some inexplicable reason I cannot 
play messages anymore. I can record just fine. I am wondering (HOPING!!!) it 
is a localized problem.
