I've noticed DEXP is greyed out / not available on my Maestro for M-MIC1, M-MIC2, M-LINE but available R-MIC, R-BAL and R-ACC??  The manual makes no mention of DEXP not working on the Maestro??  Am I doing something wrong?  I'm using a default Radiosport Mic Profile...

Cal,
   The DEXP function is a hardware function that is availabe in the radio but not available in the Maestro hardware ( or in the PC with a PC mic).

Problem is, the mic and/or ambient noise level when you're using the Maestro outside the shack is different. A Heil BM-10 plugged into the RJ-45 on the Maestro pumps room noise like mad with no solution. And that is in my quiet, plaster-walled living room. If I turn compression/mic gain down low enough to solve that I have very little power output.   C-

Bob you are absolutely correct!  Another disappointment to me. It will be hard to use the Maestro in a crowded space like a DX expedition or multi op contest!  Too much background noise....

While this is a bummer if you were in a multi op or dx situation you can always plug right into the radio.

Thank you Captain Obvious.

The point here is to use the Maestro REMOTELY, a use that has proven unsatisfactory for this reason.

Almost a year has passed and still the feature is not implemented.
