SmartSDR Antenna Management?


Greetings all...

It's winter, which means low band activity from this station. I recently got a new 160m band antenna working very well and have been very active. I also have several receive only antenna out in the yard/field. I am constantly switching my RX antenna while operating 160. I do not use a single antenna configuration for 160, 80 or 40.

Question: What are people using for antenna management from SmartSDR?

I would like to have the antenna selection to be "sticky" and continuously visible without having to go through several mouse clicks to get there. For example having an antenna management sub-panel in right hand side "Radio Panel" would be great! As it is the only options I know about are selecting "ANT" from either the upper left menu or slice flag - the antenna selection from these is either 1 or 2 more mouse clicks away.

This may seem trivial, but for DXing and contesting having the RX antenna selectable with a single mouse click would be a significant improvement in ops efficiency. Can t his be done from SmartSDR or is there a third part software that is recommended?

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
