Crosshairs on panadapter

It is very important to me to have crosshairs on the panadapter in order to more precisely analyze a signal. I might be missing something but I do not see that feature in the roadmap.

Any thoughts on this?

I also miss the Cross Hairs...
If a LEFT CLICK Turned them on and a RIGHT CLICK Turned them off.
Then a double LEFT CLICK would select the Freq and move the Pass Band
as it does now....

If the first left click also attached a small flag to the vertical hair with the exact
Frequency it would solve one of my earlier Ideas...

Hen,

I also got my license in 1955 and, as in your case, got a S-38-C in 1954!

I too would like crosshair mode on the panadapter!  I started with PowerSDR and the Flex1500 and rapidly grew to like the cross hair mode.

When I updated to SmartSDR and the 6300 that disappeared.  Wish it was still there.

Currently in 1.5.1 right clicking in the panadapter (which used to turn on cross hairs in PowerSDR) pops up a menu to add a slice.  I'd rather that be on the +RX button and put the right click back to enabling a cross hair!

I too used the crosshair tuning in PSDR . But, I found it annoying at times. I would forget which button to click and turn it off or on, when I didn't mean to. I find double clicking ona signal in SSDR to be faster, even if I have to move the Slice flag a bit.

People sure miss the old way of doing things, like spinning the VFO knob.

Bill, I miss crosshairs and mouse wheel tuning on the SmartSDR frequency display, like PowerSDR. In SSB I miss a VFO knob, but I use a Behringer
CMD controller instead ;-)
