That was #1!  Who is going to keep a log so we can see how many get shipped daily, weekly, monthly, and so can see where we were on the delivery train?

I spent about 5 hours in the OP chair today in front of my Maestro. All I can say is

Wow!!

I had some expectations of what it would do but I never expected so much for so little. The Maestro has been well thought out and duplicates most the features found in the Window based app. It even duplicates the diversity function that I rely for my Rx antennas.

I have explored most of the basic functions without much consultation from the manual- it is very intuitive and easy to learn.

Believe me you won't be disappointed!

This box is long and narrow. The Maestro fits in vertically. If you didn't order accessories it maybe shorter.

Yes, they have a very nice, weighted feel.  You can tell they paid a lot of attention to that very detail.

Since psychology discussions of instant gratification are probably best suited for a different community, I am inclined to close this topic.
