Hi Pierre,

sometimes I use N1MM (only from my club). Basicly, I don't like
this feature in both direction. If we will touch this part of
code of Tlf, may be it could be good to disjoin the directions:
- op could configure, if he types a callsign (and do something
  which triggers the add function, eg. tune the VFO up/down
  minimum 1kHz), then callsign will be added
- op could configure, if Tlf uses rigctl, and it gets the freq
  which exists in bandmap, then the callsign (which is on that
  freq) will be added back to callsign field

More features, if we will touch the code:
- bandmap columns scrolling: now there are 3 columns for bandmap,
  but on most contest, these are very few for the number of
  competitors. It could be good, than Tlf follows the freq of
  TRX, and detects that the freq leaves the freq of last station
  in first column, then shifts columns to left
- mark the nearest stations on bandmap with different background
  (or something else), or if there isn't any station between N
  kHz, then mark the previous and next nearest (with other sign)

Other ideas are welcome.

How do you think about it? What do you think about the "add-on"

(Otherwise, I'm a big Python fan :))

yes, bandmap is a big help. I've used that on WAE, and Tlf showed
the number of QTC's, what a station gave me - that was a _very_
big help. Idea came from DJ1YFK (thanks Fabian :)).
