Panadapter fails with multiple TNFs open



During the field day event; I used TNFs to mark who I talked to on the Pan adapter top section.  I understand that this is not the purpose of TNF, however, this was a way to mark the Pan Adapter of who I had made contract with on the band during the contest.

When I used a lot of TNFs (probably 40 or more); the pan adapter (top section, with the TNFs) did not move when I panned the band (right click hold and drag to move the screen over); the bottom section (waterfall) moved, the top section remained in place; not synchronized anymore.

Solution; reboot.  When i reboot; the same pan adapter, with the 40 or so TNFs, opened again as expected; the same thing happens; so reboot, and remove TNFs to resolve. 

<< it would be NICE (please-please-pretty-please with sprinkles on top) in future software upgrades to have a "method to mark / unmark - maybe with call signs" (on the pan adapter's top section) so we can figure out which signals we talked to or not during contest.>> 

If this is not clear, let me know, I will try re-stating

    I believe that's what logging programs are for.

    Bill - thanks for the report.  I  have added this to the developer's bug tracker for further investigation.

    Bill: As for marking stations, Bob is correct, the logging programs do that. It would be really slick to integrate the logging program bandmap with the pan adapter so you see not only the call sign and status, but the signal as well. If you are not familiar with bandmaps and how they work, check out N1MM logging program web site : http://n1mm.hamdocs.com/tiki-index.php?page=Getting+Started --Mike, WV2ZOW

    N1MM already does this with the bandmap activated.  It will note those stations you have worked in gray and those you have tried but not made in blue, and places a pointer at your current frequency.  It will also pull those stations into the logger entry form to alert you that they are dupes or not worked.  N1MM interfaces quite nicely via SmartCAT.  Other contest loggin programs may do the same, but this is a standard feature with N1MM and works very well.

    Same with Writelog. Albeit it would be great to have spots integrated into the display

    In the meantime, try setting the TNF's, but don't have them active. This will mark the frequencies, but won't use processing power notching frequencies out that don't really need to be filtered, only marked.
