Cannot key TX via DAX VOX unless "Tune" is clicked once - can duplicate

Just an FYI to software dev...

I've not seen reference to this apparent bug in the Community, but perhaps it's buried in a thread somewhere.

Running a 6300 with SmartSDR v1.2.1.49, radio hardware v1.2.1.25. I run JT65 on slice B while listening to another section of the same band on slice A. After powering up the radio and starting SmartSDR, if I click Tune in the JT65 app, the transmitter will not key. I hear the audio tone through the monitored DAX channel. If I click "Tune" ON THE RADIO GUI, the TX will key normally. If I then go back and click Tune in the JT65 app, the transmitter will now key. Proper keying of the TX from the JT65 app will work until the radio is powered down. Restarting SmartSDR has no effect; the problem seems to only manifest after a power-on reset of the radio itself.

Bottom line - for JT65 operation, you have to remember to key the TX via the radio's GUI Tune button first, then you can use the JT65 app normally.

Hopefully this and the other little bugs will simply be resolved in the next code release. :-)
