SmartSDR bug in "Radio Setup"

edited March 2017 in SmartSDR API
While looking for a way to clear out the existing callsign/name via the api (from another thread), I came across a crazy bug.

With SmartSDR running:

1) Click on the General tab
2) Enable "Nickname" as the active display.
3) Enter something into the Nickname field and hit "tab" (I see it send "radio name blah" to the radio)

4) Now, click on the "GPS" tab.
5) Click on the "Transmit" tab.
6) Click on the "CW" tab.

While monitoring network traffic, after I clicked on the "CW" tab, I see it send "radio name" to the radio (with no value after it), and the radio responds with the current value that I set earlier.  If I click back on the General tab, the name field is empty.

Nothing major, but ya never know if it points to a larger bug somewhere. :)

    btw, same thing happens if I reverse steps 4-5-6.  I'm able to reproduce it every time.
