This might be a "mute" question...

I like to use my Maestro while sitting in the living room with my wife. Last night (Aug. 26, 2020) I was wanting to listen to the hurricane net (7.268) for any possible updates. There was a lot of "dead air" space where it was simply background noise.

So, my question is: How to squelch a Maestro so you don't hear the 'rush' of the background noise and still leave the AGC-T up to a level that doesn't lower incoming signals so much that you have to turn AF way up which defeats the purpose. With my Yaesu 857 I can toggle the RF gain knob to either RF gain or squelch. With my Kenwood 590 again I turn up the RF gain until it "break's squelch" and I can hear the conversation.

While I'm in the shack I could use FR Stack, but I'm not at the main computer and the SmartSDR screens to use FR Stack.

    You can use FRStack on the main computer binded to the Maestro client.
