TX Slice Highlighting - Feature Idea

The panadapter is like having a secret weapon when working split! One suggestion -- could we make the "transmit" slice more obvious? Maybe with a different background or highlight color? I'm getting to be a forgetful guy, and have found myself on more than one occasion forgetting to move the TX to the proper slice, and acting like a lid in the process. Or perhaps a relay closure to the electrodes in my chair will help?

    Yes, the ability to customize transparent TX slice color would be greatly appreciated. Just as any other customizable color/transparency parameters in the display. Flexibility is the key. The display options on PSDR are awesome. I hope that SSDR will follow suit some time soon.

    Please don't ask me how often I've transmitted on 20 while listening on 17 and not intended to work split. :-) Something making which slice is transmitting very, very obvious will be a great help to those us following the ancient rule of "Fire, Ready, Aim." when faced with rare DX, something like buck fever for you hunters out there. -- Jim

    The above comments are another reason I asked about putting a large freq readout window in the bottom border populated with the frequency of the actual open TX slice frequency. Im sure some sort of "improvement" is imminent.

    This is a good idea! We will take a look at this.
