Few ideas for Maestro and SW

While my previous ideas never showed up, I decided to put new ones anyway.

I do not know know why Flex is so obsessed with putting SN or SW version on SSDR, TGXL,PGXL and Maestro - all that information should be paced in Settings - About. It will make all screens much cleaner as it absolutely not needed not a daily basis. Actually I suggested this one before.

There is a lot of wasted space on maestro screen in Smart Control Mode. Here is a suggestion - place Map with a gray line when in Smart Control Mode as an option. Some space on the main Monitor could be saved and Maestro would be much more useful.

Also, there is a lot of noise in transparent mode on Maestro screen. Need some cleaning

Happy New Year.

    Hi Sergey

    Any chance you can post this in the Ideas area? I can't move it there and it will get lost.

    Here is one more idea

    On Maestro you have VFO a and VFO B knobs only, but on my 6600 I can enable 4 RX.

    For setup as on image below, I have programmed WSJT on Slice A and Slice B and radio talks to 2 logs open at the same time. But while I look at WSJT activities, I also chaise some CW or SSB stations, VFO knobs on Maestro are idle at that time.

    We have 6 Functions buttons on Maestro, Please add more functions like assign any of F1-F6 buttons to be assigned to VFO A-->VFO C and VFOB-->VFO D. That way VFO A and VFO B do not have to be moved as they on WSJT, but VFO C and VFO D can be utilized to chaise other modes and frequencies. It would be very cool!

    Happy New Year!

    Hi Sergey, I don't think that you can move it; It needs to be re-posted as an idea. Mike would not have asked for it to be re-posted if it would not be looked at by Flex.
