Atu Byp in cw

On SSDR 0.15.10 and the new 0.15.13 release, when I tune on SSB, the Success shows and the Atu stays on. When I tune on CW, I get a Success in green, but the Atu grays and the Byp illuminates. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong? BTW, the resulting SWR is always fine. Perhaps this is because my match is so good without the tuner it switches out? Sorry if this is pedestrian, but I'm completely new to Flex and have no history with it whatsoever.

It's just that having the Success and Bypass on at the same time (in CW) seems peculiar to me.

thx es 73

This appears to be a software bug where the status indicators are not updating properly. I have entered your problem description into the developer's bug tracker for additional investigation. Thanks for the report Brad.

Are you saying you get different results on CW and SSB on the same frequency? If so, that sounds like an issue that we will need to look into.

It is worth noting that if the match is better when in Bypass mode, the ATU algorithm will leave the radio in that state. The success indicator is the key here.

Update: Tim has tested this and verified different results on CW and SSB on the same frequency.

Thanks Eric. Unless I hear otherwise, I will let Tim's testing provide your baseline for investigation. Let me know if more information about my circumstances are required.

Thanks,

We found and fixed at least one problem that may have been contributing to this issue. This fix will be in the 0.16.x release.
