I wrote this program to provide quick point and click selection of Receive
Antenna's and other receive options and to avoid some of the Touch Screen
fumbling associated with the Maestro or Menu's in it and SmartSDR.

Each Antenna can be selected manually using the Buttons so named.  

Audio
can be switched between headphone or Speakers.

Binaural Audio
can be turned on or off.

Diversity
Receive can be activated and Right and Left Antenna's selected.

RF Gain
can quickly be changed to optimize Antenna gain.

In an environment where more than one Flex is available your Radio
can be selected from a list on the left by Double Clicking the Radio IP. 

The Nickname of the radio is show for future reference.

Only Slice A and/or B is controlled. When using One Slice or Two Slices.
As in SO1R or SO2R (two panadapters) .

The A1/A Button will cycle between ANT1 and RXA on Slice A.
The A2/B Button will cycle between ANT2 and RXB on Slice B.

These two buttons can also be activated by HOT Keys   [  and  ] respectively.
The Hot Keys will continue to be active even if the Program window is minimized.  The Hot Key function will NOT take Focus from Logging Programs.

I Wrote the Program for Myself and a few friends with special requests.
I Hope it might be useful to some others...   Enjoy

It is available on our Club Web Site at  http://www.w9az.com
It is in a standard Zip File and Instructions along with a PDF are also available
on the Web Site..

    Ken's app does work really well.
    It fits the way I operate in that I use all of my transmit antennas to enhance low noise receive including a pennant and ewe. Quick access to Diversity rx is nice also with the right antenna combination.
    Have been using the app through all of the versions leading up tp this one and find I use the hot keys more than anything else.  I use N1MM+ and 6600 with a Maestro.
    Nice job Ken!
    You've done a lot of great projects over the years but this is without a doubt the most useful.
    Casual ops, contesters and DXers alike will find this a must have app for their 6K.

    Thanks Ken!  Easy to install and a big help for a multi-user remote station for our club.  Especially helpful for a quick check/tweak of RF gain.

    73 es tu!

    Ken just posted an updated version 2.4 is now available instead of 2.3 mentioned here.
    The only change fixed a problem with the DIV Button (Diversity Receive) that was only on the 6600M model.
