You're pulling the rug out from under DXView's feet.. then expecting it to
step back onto the rug later.
I suppose it *might* be possible for DXView to somehow detect that the COM
port has stopped working, and then keep retrying to connect to it until it
reappears. I'm not sure if that can be done with the VB library that's used
to talk to COM ports.
It looks like the GH RT21 has a RS232 port as well as the USB one, and the
manual says you can use either. You could connect the RS232 port to a real
COM port, or an USB/Serial adapter. The difference there is that the
external adapter would be powered from the PC's USB port, not the RT21's
internal power supply.

turn off the GH and later turn it on, DXView doesn't recognize it. I have
to restart DXV to get it connected again. I didn't find anything in the
wiki to resolve this. Any ideas?

least 2 of my 3 rotors to DXlabs to get them to turn the antennas on the
different towers. One rotor is easy and it works fine. But I thought we
could specify a separate rotor for a different band for instance.
