A previous RIT/XIT thread has been closed, but I must open another one to discuss the RIT/XIT implementation in V1.2.1. First of all, thank you Flex for listening to our ideas about graphically displaying dotted or dashed lines on the panadapter to visualize the RIT/XIT offsets.
I like the implementation of the XIT line that is displayed on the panadapter when XIT is engaged with the Flex Control or the XIT button on the panel. The RIT implementation, however, is very confusing and counter-intuitive to what I would have expected. I have been discussing the RIT graphic representation with AL(NN4ZZ), Mike(K5UX), and Dale(KB5VE), and we are all in agreement that the XIT should be represented in the same manner as the XIT ( a dotted or dashed line of a unique color).
In the present RIT scheme, the Slice Flag and receive passband moves up or down in frequency according to the RIT offset, leaving behind a dashed line and dark passband where the Slice Flag and frequency was initially. This is very confusing to us, and I would bet, to a lot of other operators. We would like the Slice Flag and passband to remain at the frequency displayed on the Slice Flag, and graphically represent the RIT frequency offset on the panadapter with a dotted or dashed line of a unique color, similar to the way you are doing it with the XIT offset.
I tried to put the nice drawing that Al, NN4ZZ, posted previously for the RIT/XIT implementation, but I couldn't get it to display in this posting. Al, could you repost it below my post as a comment for me?
Again, we appreciate the effort, but we would really like the Slice to remain fixed and the RIT offset represented by a dashed line of a unique color, similar to the XIT representation.
