SmartSDR 1.3 Tune Power Global Setting Option or Lower Default
Running SmartSDR 1.3 Win7Pro and using the Flex-6300 I found that the transmit tab setting was band-by-band.
This is the 50+ keyclick and 10 power entry set of steps I am suggesting a "set default Tune Power for all Bands" would make into perhaps 3 keyclicks and one power entry.
A seasoned SmartSDR operator may remember to do every band if we put it on a checklist, but it sure seems the hard way to do initial settings.
Suggestion is, could a "Set all Bands ONCE to Tune Level in Box" button be added? That way I would have been able to select 8 watts and touch a button to baseline all the bands to that setting, then I could change anything that needed adjusting.
Caught a nip from the CrankIR when in the dusk I didn't catch the jump back to 100 watts when trying another band. No big deal and largely operator error (oversight).
The other possibility is that the out-of-the-box default should be 10 watts for safety(I think Carl N4PY has his control software default that way).
