[DOCUMENTATION] Incorrect units specified for ADF set events

I was trying to make a custom set of ADF knobs and tried to set the ADF frequency using Frequency BCD16 and the ADF_ACTIVE_SET event. After looking into the Simulation Variable Units page I saw that "Frequency ADF BCD32" should be used for ADF frequencies.

If one goes to the Radio Navigation EventIDs page, they'll see this, which is misleading: 1661247505518.png

Hello @SWS-AlexVletsas

You are right, the expected unit is "Frequency ADF BCD32", as indicated in the simvar page.
@Nocturne will fix this.

Sylvain
