So now that folks have had the ability to use Profiles for a while. I'm curious to know exactly how they are being used. Especially naming conventions and ease of use. I've created and deleted several of mine over the past few months in an effort to come up with something that makes sense and is easy to use. In general I've sort of settled on having a single profile for each mode I operate on and for each band. Some of these also have additional slices but that makes naming them more complicated. In other words say I have a profile set up for DIGU 40M. I also have 2 other slices on that same profile which are for SSB so I can listen in on a couple of my favorite 40m SSB frequencies. Of course my naming convention doesn't indicate this. Here's a short example of what I'm currently using.
CW 40M, CW 80M, and others for each band
DIGU 40M, DIGU 80M, and others for each band
SSB 40M, SSB 80M, and others for each band
I also have a few nets
NET 20M Maritime, NET 40M Early Morning, NET 20M Flexnet, and several others
One configuration I haven't used much is setting up profiles that open up several panadapters and slices for GENERAL listening. I think I'll be using this a lot more once v1.4 is available which should include a Squelch. It will certainly make it easier to monitor several frequencies at the same time. Maybe someone can chime in and comment on what naming conventions they are using for General monitoring of several panadapters/slices.
So, while we're waiting for v1.4 can some of you give us some examples of how you are currently using Profiles and comment on what naming conventions you're using? How about for General monitoring of several panadapters/slices?
