Increase Zoom

When zooming inon a panadapter (less frequency spectrum visible), I would like to be able to zoom in 1 or 2 steps more .

Currently, the closest in you can zoom to is 1 kHz per grid line. I would like to see 500 Hz or even 200 Hz per grid line.

At least this. Better still, a spectrum display option with a grid calibrated for audio frequencies on a display that can have adjustable averaging.

Yes, on CW the current zoom level of about 15 khz is too wide for crowded contest conditions. +\- 4 khz or +\-2 khz would be ideal. That was possible in PowerSDR.

It seemed to me on one of the pre-releases we were able to see 500hz per grid line then again maybe I was just dreaming.

Ray, I get 500Hz when I zoom in all the way, that's in CW I don't know about SSB.

Me too! Much closer, when using 100Hz, it's way to far out, for us "oldie but goodie" folk.

By all means. When working cw dx that is working simplex, non-split,
good manners dictate that you should never be zero beat or too
close to it. This means that you want to be close, but not too close.
We need at least a couple more zoom levels to do well at splitting those
hairs successfully.
