Now running Ver 2.2.8 on my 6300.  Love the new Flag Split Mode.  When I activate "Split" Slice B sets up 0.5 KC above Slice A.  Is there a way to modify the 0.5KC value?  For instance 1KC or 2KC?  Thanks to Flex's software team.  Nice job!   Easy install and no problems with running 3rd party programs.

There is no way to modify it, sadly.  Just enable the split and move the slice once it appears.

The Split is 5KHz up. After you create it you can move it to another frequency.

Here the SPLIT button creates the B slice "up 1"   -- see snapshot.

Only tried in CW mode (that is all I use).

Is the split amount different depending on mode, radio model, or something else?

Yes, it is 1 kHz on CW, 5 kHz on SSB. Nice!

Nice defaults, but how hard would it be to include a menu item to change that value?

Probably more difficult than you would expect.  In any event, whatever the split offset is, it is only a starting point.  When a DX station says "up 5", the pile-up might start 5kHz above the DX station, but will spread out from there.  The defaults are good starting points.

The neat thing about the panadapter as implemented by Flex is the ability to "seee" the less crowded spoys in th epile-up & go there, or, more importantly, be able to "see" where in th epile-up the DX statioon is listening & move your TX frequency accordingly.  I have busted many pile-ups by setting my TX frequency to just above (or below) the station the DX station is currently working.

I do not do much split operation BUT that makes this Split Mode function even more valuable since I don't have to stop and expend brain cell activity to remember how to manually set it up hihi  Anyhow, I for one like this feature.

As a somewhat more than casual DX'er, I simply LOVE this new feature.
