Most of the time when I chase a split DX station I much prefer to use RIT instead of two flags.
The problem is that I cannot tell exactly what my RIT split is in Hz.

I would like to request the addition of RIT in the flag in Blue for RIT and Red for XIT in the Maestro flag just as it is in SSDR.

Could I get some "Me TOO's" for my suggestion?

Tim what say, is this reasonable and doable?
Would very much appreciate the consideration.

Thanks,
Clay N9IO

The 1400 is the RIT freq 1400Hz = 1.4Khz in the pic.

Please Vote,  thanks...

Good suggestion Clay.  I've seen several good suggestions on this forum, but difficult to say if FRS plans to use them.

Good Idea Clay.
Nice to know how far the RIT or XIT has been moved.

One more consideration is (+) or (-) indication depending on the
direction the offset has been moved.

Yes Ken, blank for positive movement, (-) for negative would suffice.

I realize ver 2 is on the horizon with the heavy work likely near completion
but this RIT indicator is an operational feature that to me is far more
important than making SSDR work simultaneously with the Maestro.

That RIT is something that I used on in every Yaesu and Icom I have owned,
a DX aid simple as it is that should exist on Maestro as well.

That was almost a deal breaker for me in that it works perfectly in SSDR
why not in the Maestro?  I really am amazed that it was not.
