Add a built in client for RTTY and PSK out of the box for M models to truly give a PC less operator experience. Of course if you add CW to it that’d be even better. Yes I know I can use all these softwares on a PC or Surface with DAX and CAT, but it’d be very nice to have the option of having it built in too.

I grew up with RTTY and thoroughly enjoyed it, but without error correction, it is nothing but an historic curiosity IMO.  In the 1990's, I went into Hal's robust 4 tone  Clover II which was fantastic. Today, we have new generations of digital modes to chose to.
With band conditions dropping to worst imaginable levels, the newer digital modes are no brainers since they are far more robust with error correction and ability to work with moderate power. The days of the required legal limit 1.5KW amps with RTTY 28 ASR terminal with piles of old brittle yellow paper of over for me.  Of course, you pays yer money and makes yer choice.
