HI  just find a new usage to my flex 6700

you all know that it let monitor the whole HF and/or VHF band in once ;-) 
but if you display rate to 1  you have now 20 hour of waterfall pan-adapter "buffer" :-)
and last hour Show on the PC screen

so lot of fun spotting un-knot space-craft and other thing that happen when your not operate the radio 

that also permit to correlate infamous pager inter-modulation issue near 144.600

Open the Display menu (left-hand side of the panadapter).  Set the Waterfall rate from the default of 80 to 1/
