Re: Proposed increase in the height of DXView's Main window to make the current antenna azimuth stand out

To enable a larger display of the rotator's current heading without increasing the height of DXView's Main window when the "Query
Special Callsign database" option is enabled, I have re-arranged the panels and added an option that controls whether or not the
"GeoMag" panel is displayed.

Please consider the two screen shots in <http://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxview/DXViewProposal.jpg>

In the upper screen shot, both the existing "Query Special Callsign database" option and the new "Display GeoMag" panel options are
disabled. DXView's Main window height is unchanged from that of the current version with the "Query Special Callsign database"
option disabled.

The lower screen shot shows the increased Main window height when either the "Query Special Callsign database" option or the new
"Display GeoMag" panel options are enabled. DXView's Main window height is slightly increased in comparison with the current version
with the "Query Special Callsign database" option disabled (because the GeoMag panel is a slightly taller than the "Special Callsign
Tags" panel).

When starting this new version of DXView, the new "Display GeoMag" panel option will default to "enabled" (because this panel has
always been visible in previous versions), but you will have the option to not display it in order to reduce the Main window height
(assuming you have the "Query Special Callsign database" option disabled).

Objections?

Better ideas?
