Tuning amp.. tools for the serious flex contester

It would be great in Smart SDR if there was a button to pass the tune power level to the actual drive power level on demand.  Say you are driving a manual amp.  you dial it all in, but then you need to manually note your tune power and adjust the drive power accordingly.  why not have a "send tune power to drive power" button?  I may have some additional observations as I attempt to get this maginificent rig into competitive shape.

    Take a look at DDUtil - DDutil has the ability to control radio output power by band and by amp.  There's also a quick set button on the DDUtil main control panel that allows you to save the power level to the autosets.

    Makes band changes etc a breeze.

    Chris As Stu stated Ddutil will do just what your asking. If you have one of the Amps built into the Ddutil program its operation is seamless and full remote operation is possible. Ian

    U must always confirm activate monitor intervene when necessary. The latest DDutil seems very stable only error occasionally is the 50% power selection. Ian
