Still no way to create a TNF on Maestro?

Is it true that you still can't create a TNF filter on Maestro?

    If you create a TNF on a computer will it carry over to the Maestro?

    It will carry over, but it seems pretty useless if I understand it correctly. Perhaps I'm missing something in the instructions, but it seems all you can do on Maestro is turn an existing TNF on or off. This means if I'm using Maestro and hear a signal I want to block, I have to disconnect Maestro from the Flex, then connect back into the Flex with either SmartSDR for iOS or Windows, then set up the TNF, then disconnect and then reconnect with Maestro. I have to repeat the procedure for any change to the TNF as well as there is no way I have found to move or adjust a TNF on the Maestro.

    The controls for managing TNFs have not been added to the Maestro software yet.

    Tim, Just an update on this.....I find that I'm using Maestro more and more in preference to SmartSDR on the PC.  What started out as using Maestro just for contesting has turned out to be using Maestro all the time as my preferred way to control the Flex.

    Initially I preferred seeing the panadapter on the big PC screen but the benefits of Maestro gradually won me over - overall, it seems easier and more intuitive to use than PC+Mouse - at least for me.  The processing demmands on the PC are also lower and I use the extra CPU and PC screen real estate to show more Flex connected apps like FRStack, Amateur Contact Log, WSJT-X, CW Skimmer, etc. That list seems to be growing daily. 

    What would be very cool would be the ability to use both SmartSDR and Maestro simultaneously.

    John, I agree.

    Maestro is my preferred interface as well even though I have a top cabin monitor. I hope the Maestro delivery issues do not deemphasize new feature development.
