Description

Hi
On my computer I have both my FT-897 and FT-DX-10. Both radios have 2 COM ports and there is no way to know which one is the FT897 when I have to connect except COM number , which is concatenated after the device description but the combo box width is too small to see that information.
So, could you please use instead of when populating items in the combo box?

On other platforms, the com port name is long and not very suitable for being in front of the string either. But yeah, I'll see what I can do to make this better.
