Flex 6500 RX audio dropouts while dragging pan

While dragging the pan adapter left or right the RX audio will sputter. When I stop dragging the pan then the sputtering stops and thr RX audio is fine. Are others having this issue on SSDR 1.3.8? I've installed the latest video driver from the video card manufacturer but no improvement. This may be a nit-pick as I don't generally care about RX audio while I'm scrolling the pan.

I have a 6500 and can reproduce this (kind of) if the pan-adapter is very wide say 6.6 Meg to 7.2 Meg and I drag the display at some point a relay clicks and the receive antenna changes. Not sure why the RX antenna should change with out my request but it does. At that moment the Audio cuts out for a moment. In the picture below if I move the display to the right just a bit (where the frequency indicator is just over the D in WIDE) it will make the antenna switch.

We are aware of this issue and the recent work we are doing for SmartSDR v1.4.0 should mitigate the effect of audio drop outs when tuning (panning) the panadapter.  There may still be instance where changing the radio state will result in a momentary interruption of audio.
