CW Splits - vision for RIT/XIT

I'm currently working CW DX splits with 2 slices which works pretty well. Reference the snapshot.
- listen to the DX on slice B
- listen "up 1" and transmit on slice A (note: with DDUtil owning the FLEXContol knob I can adjust the slice A frequency even though it is not the active slice)

What is the vision for the RIT/XIT user control enhancement that is coming in V1.1? Or is it too early for that yet? It seems like there are several ways this could be implemented.
- will a single slice display be expanded to show RIT and XIT offsets
- will a single slice display both the receive and transmit frequencies?
- or will RIT/XIT link 2 slices so we can still listen to both the DX and the pile?
- or is there something else planned?

Also curious about how others are working splits today....

One way is to use the Split feature in DDUtil v3.
- Open 2 radio slices (A/B)
In the DDUtil GUI (Misc window 2nd row right side)
- Set a offset amount
- Press the Split button
Slice A is the receive slice
Slice B is the transmit slice
Toggling the Split button moves the TX from slice A<>B

The RIT/XIT function is slice specific, so there will be a drop down menu on the slice control panel from the R/XIT menu.

You will be able to change both RIT and XIT for that particular slice relative to the slice carrier frequency.

BTW, I use two slices to operate split as you have described.

Thanks, TIM. RIT/XIT on the same slice will be very nice.

Ok, so it sounds like the single slice RIT/XIT will be good for simplex operation when you want to move your receive frequency slightly to compensate for the other guy drifting a bit, or to transmit slightly away from the crowd.

And for DX splits when you want to listen to both frequencies at the same time the method I noted earlier is probably the way to go.
