Hi Andy,

thanks for your test report. Let me try to answer your questions.

I did some work in last weeks to  stabilize it and I think pre2 will be
much better there.

You are right, that is what is implemented. My idea behind that was
that you normally only have one spot of a station per band and mode. If
you filter your bandmap by mode or band Ctrl-g will select the right

Are there reasonable scenarios where we have would need to select
between more than one spot per band/mode for the same station? Than I
should think about a way to handle it.

The memory recall is the same as in normal memory operation. As the man
page says hitting '#' records frequency if memory is empty and recalls
it if it is set. So after grabing a spot you can switch back to Run
mode by '+' and to old frequency by '#'.

I see the point and will think about to implement something similar. But
it will be at low priority at the moment.

The score window will be in the upper right in next prerelase (just did
it yesterday :-) ). As the frequency window is only temporarily visible
it may hide the bandmap for that time - should be acceptable.

Same as for correcting the score after delete, see below...

Btw, I plan to release the next prerelease version in next two week.
