We got a question about “programming radios” (that is, bulk entering frequency memories and configuration, from a computer or other radio) that was tagged programming (which says it is for software development); I believe this has happened before. I noticed that we don't actually have a good tag for that concept, and I used equipment-operation as the closest relative, but it's a poor fit because questions on the subject involve things like making custom cables.
I've also noticed that we have no tag that well fits questions about “CAT” (controlling a transceiver in normal operation from a computer), other than remote-control (and many uses of CAT are not remote).
I'm thinking that these are related gaps, but I am uncertain of what to do. Here are some ideas (neither all compatible nor all mutually exclusive). I'd like some input on good naming and whether these tags should exist.
Rename programming to computer-programming or software-development or some such name. (Ideally both this and the radio programming tag would contain the word 'programming' so that people typing into the autocompleting tag box get cued to disambiguate, but it should also not be long/clunky.)
Create something like equipment-interfacing, which covers radio programming, CAT, and even audio wiring (but excluding antenna-system and dc-power matters). Either instead of or in addition to the above specific ones.
