A Third Profile Category for Hardware Settings
Transmit Profiles have been very useful, but I am still fighting a few of the included parameters. The inclusion of hardware related parameters such as power levels and TX output delays seems to be a completely different category than microphone and CW settings.It would be much more useful to have a third profile type, call it hardware (I’m sure someone can come up with a better name) that includes, referring to the table on page 56 of the current software manual, all the parameters in the INTERLOCK column and first seven parameters in the POWER column (mostly power settings).
I want these hardware parameters to remain the same as long as I am hooked up to the same external hardware. Having to set them repeatedly in every transmit profile is both tedious and prone to error that can damage my hardware (especially the power levels and sequencer/hold-off delays).
Conversely, if I change hardware, such as from an old tube linear to the QSK capable KPA-500, I want to change the “hardware” settings but not all of the microphone and CW settings (except maybe CW delay?).
So, the specific proposal here is for a third profile category for “hardware” settings. I am sure refinements can be made on the specific parameter choices mentioned above.
