[WriteLog] FTDX5000 & Writelog (and IOTA)

This has been mentioned before and I believe this still requires attention.
When running in a multiband contest as assisted Writelog does not issue 
the new Yaesu type CAT BS (band select) command when QSYing the radio. 
Therefore any ATT, AMP and Rx antenna settings remain the same when 
QSYing. The work around is to press the band button on the radio before 
clicking the cluster spot but that's not ideal.

In the IOTA contest writelog even managed to QSY the FTDX5000 from 20M 
SSB to 40M in USB. I have no idea how that happened but it wasn't a 
single occurrence. (Anyone ever notice that the IOTA DX Spot mult list 
is DXCC as opposed to islands?)

And while I'm at it, does anyone know if it possible to create a macro 
to trigger the DVK from the F-Keys?
