The GAB window is reserved only for GAB messages and DX Cluster directed
TALK messages, as it should be.

Note that you can see the first five characters of spot comments in the
Alt-A (DX-Cluster Announcements) window, when Display options->Comments is
enabled in the pop-up menu.  If you hover over these 5 characters with the
mouse, the full comment text is displayed.  You can do the same thing in
the bandmap window:  hover over any spot to see the full comments and other

But yes, it would be nice to display more than just the first 5 characters
of comments in the Announcements window, based on window width.

You can see everything in the Alt-O window, but it often scrolls away too
