Noise Blanker Problem: It needs improvement

On 6 meters today the line noise was horrible on the 6700 SmartSDR. When the  blanker was engaged I saw no noticable difference (engaging and sliding the NB lever all the way to the right made no difference that I could tell).

On the other hand, when I fired up my Flex 5000  with PowerSDR, the same line noise level was observed. Engaging the NB's on PowerSDR totally eliminated the line noise.

When will this be fixed on SmartSDR (6 meter E's season is upon us)?

My suggestion is that when it does get FIXED, that the reduced noise floor be shown on the spectrum display, as is the case with PowerSDR.

       Some things are time-sensitive and need to be done sooner rather than later.
