CW pitch step needs to be smaller

The manual says "Clicking on the < or > buttons will decrease or increase the CW pitch frequency (tone) in 50 Hz increments"

50 hz is a pretty big step for CW pitch and the current adjustment goes a ridiculous amount that you would never need.  Why would you need a 4000 hz or 100hz pitch?

When I tweak the pitch I have to manually type it in as its usually 10 or 20. Normally, I would not have noticed this but running 3rd party applications where I click tune it does not always  get where I want and making an adjustment one time usually takes care of it for that application.

Is there any reason to have 50hz steps?

I just confirmed that on SmartSDR for Windows, it uses 50 Hz steps when adjusting the CW Pitch.  It looks like we use 10 Hz on Maestro and on the M series.  

I have entered issue #6138 to address this.  Thanks for the input.
