It would be very nice to be able to have this -dbm readout up all the time, or at
least have the option to toggle it the way we did in PSDR.

    That suggestion has been on the WISH LIST for several years now..

    Especially since the red on black of the S-Meter is virtually unreadable to my vision challenged eyes.

    Albeit the S-Meter (Blue on White) is readable as an Alternative Color on SmartSDR for iOS

    You can do it in DDUtil for the active slice.

    Hi Ria and thank you. 
    I am using that feature on DDUtil.

    Hi Howard,
    I know the request to make the S-Meter scale colors more readable has been around for a few years (along with similar requests for the SWR and power scales).  And we have made suggestions about having digital and analog readouts for both camps.  
      
    I did some mockup for the SWR and Power scales but don't think we made any for the S-Meter so figured I'd put one together.  It is based on the standard conversion between S reading and dBm from the table below.   Let me know if you think this mockup captures the idea.   

    I can also add this mockup to the S-Meter idea if you have the link to the one you prefer.  

    Regards, Al / NN4ZZ

    The idea is to expand the scale for both S and dBm as well as provide a large and visible digital readout.  In addition make it more readable with a WHITE background.  Click the image to see it full size.

    Howard, Well that white background really does make a difference. We have both been advocating that for a while now. The mockup I made takes the next step and provides the digital readout also. And I forgot to mention that the suggested format would also avoid over-writing the frequency display in the slice. Regards, Al / NN4ZZ

    Al

    Us visually challenged have been begging for visible colors for years and years..

    But I also understand that the Flex needs to pay the light bill so they have to concentrate on important stuff like V2.0

    Howard, Understand.....but hopeful since I read in another post that FRS now has a new GUI programmer . Maybe we'll see some of these things this year or next. Regards, Al / NN4ZZ

    I'd like to see an additional option to completely replace the S unit bar graph with a digital readout of the dBm level.
