Good Morning - Running Version 3.6.5. on Windows 10. Using a FT-847 with OmniRig and a MicroHam USB Interface 3 and the MicroHam USB Router software. VarAc is working great and I am able to make contacts with no issues. All features are working great! That said I get the following message at start up. 'PortName' cannot be set while the port is open. at System.IO.Ports.SerialPort.set_PortName(String value)
The start up log is below.

I would like to send you a beta version so you can test it and make sure that:
You dont see this error anymore
I did not ruin anything with the RTS/DTR PTT while fixing this bug :)
Send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send you a download link.
Thank you for reporting. I identified the bug.
The program tried to change the active RTS/DTR port while it was already in use by itself :)
Will be fixed in V3.7
Please attach a screenshot of your Settings. I believe I know why but wanna make sure.
