Summary0002131: Rig Control: incorrect commands often sent to Yaesu radios
DescriptionWhile watching the a between the radio and the application, I see that several commands are repeatedly sent to Yaesu radios.
Steps To Reproduce1) Run a debug build under a debugger
2) Connect to my FT-450D
3) Watch the debug output for the radio communication

BUG#1) Several "read meter" ("RM;") commands are sent every second. These get an error ("?;") response because they must have a parameter identifies which meter (like "RM4;")
BUG#2) "SM1;" command is often sent, this is meant to read a secondary or "sub" S-meter. This radio has no such feature, so the command results in an error ("?;") response.

I have made this checkin:

which addresses the RM commands for the FT-450D radio.

The same checkin stops querying the non-existing SM1 sub-meter for these radios:

FT-DX 3000

I believe the issue applies to a few other radios, but those are the only ones for which I have protocol documentation at this time.

Finally, I think this same checkin resolves issues with not being able to read the S-meter on the FT-991A at all. This should fix issues with S-meter related functions, like HRD's software-driven scanning.
