Model affected:TS-480SAT/HX


The TS-480 Live-mode driver does not upload channel changes due to -
1) Missing zero in MW strings
2) Mal-formed USB packet response from the radio causes echo timeout
Radio does not always echo the MW cmd
3) Logic for sending MW1 Tx (split) string needs tweaking for duplex mode changed
4) Tstep bit index has typo; fails index lookup

Operators keep plugging I/O cable into TNC port on radio head, instead of radio base. Causes model ID error.
Add an instructions prompt regarding proper port.
