Summary0003232: Rig Control slider doesn't set TX power for FTDX-1200
DescriptionThe Rig Control application has a slider for "TX Power Level", but this slider doesn't work.
Steps To Reproduce
1) Open Rig Control and connect to an FTDX-1200 radio
2) Use the "Menu" button on the radio to access the menu settings
3) Use the VFO B dial to scroll to setting 178, which is "EXT AMP TUNING PWR"

4) Use the "Radio Layout" command in the "View" menu to reach the "Customize Layout" dialog
5) On the "Sliders: Layout" tab, make sure the "177 TX Power Level" slider is visible.

6) Exercise the "TX Power Level" slider.

BUG#1) The radio doesn't change the "EXT AMP TUNING PWR" setting

7) Use the VFO-B knob on the radio to change the radio's setting directly.

BUG#2) The UI doesn't reflect the radio's change.

I believe the TX Power level from the radios internal amplifier are controlled with the "PC" command, not by setting menu 178. 178 is intended to set the power level to drive an external amplifier. The "RF Power" slider (with no menu number) is the right command for setting the internal amp's drive.

Turns out this setting runs the power output given when using an external amp and doing a tuning operation. Only a few steps: 10, 20, 50, 100.

Fixed with this checkin:
