Any error checking with the DStar/ThumbDV?

Right now I can't find any DStar stations, so I'll probably wait until I get my 70cm transverter in a week or two, but I have been tinkering around with it.

Is there any way to check that the ThumbDV is fully operational, short of having a DStar QSO? I removed the ThumbDV and the rest of the software did not pop up a single error window to ask "****". The software acts the same with or without the dongle, although I am sure that without the dongle you won't hear any DStar QSOs.

    If the ThumbDV dongle is not communication with the radio hardware when you try and transmit, all you will see on the panadapter is a single tone, like you are doing a TUNE.  I have added an entry in our bug tracker to investigate additional alerts if transmit dependencies have not been met.
