RX Equalizer tailored for CW
I have been using the RX equalizer on CW. With the 500HZ slider set to +10db and the other frequencies set to -10DB it provides a small but beneficial amount of audio peaking.

Would it be feasible to have the RX equalizer tailored for CW with a narrower range of frequency selections? This should allow the peaking to be greater over a smaller frequency range like on some other radios. Does this seem logical and feasible? See snapshot, CLICK to enlarge.

Tim,
I figured that even though the idea got votes, it needed to be marked as "under consideration" to be considered. Maybe it's just my confusion on the process.
For example here are some that are listed as "under consideration." The "RX Equalization" idea has been posted for a about 3 weeks but not categorized. It looks like there are 3 categories:
- under consideration
- completed
- not planned

But some ideas seem to remain un-categorized for a long time while others more recent get categorized. . Can you clarify the idea consideration process and how ideas get on "the list.

If it is something that someone in management at FlexRadio has previously said we plan to do or development has tentative plans to do it in the future, then it is marked as under consideration. Until that time it is not under consideration until it is considered by development.

Tim,
Yes, that is why I figured it should be marked considered. See the 2 separate comments here in the post from Gerald where he indicated it could be done and was being considered.

It is software so a lot of things "can" be done which is a true statement. Just because it can be done is not an implicit indication that it is under serious consideration as a SmartSDR feature. We are early in the software development game. Please be patient.

It's all a matter of ones & zero's, isn't it... if you have enough ones & zeros! Ah, but there's the rub....

W5UN, Dave, has been raising Cain that we need an APF as good as, or better than the one in the K-3...for some time....

We hard core weak signal CW guys got a glimmer of hope from Gerald when he told Dave, W5UN, in person, something like 'oh, like the inverse of a notch filter ?'

If the ANF ( auto notch filter ) can automatically find and notch a carrier on ssb.....
1 / f(x), enabled on cw ?? ok, ok it can't possibly be that easy...

Gerald,
Thanks for entering this as user story ID: US2051 in the log.

And thanks for the clarification that this idea should be marked as "under consideration" because it has been entered as a user story. User stories get reviewed during the release planning stage.

Many of us CW DXers thank you for the consideration and will be looking forward hearing more when it gets reviewed.

Tim,
It was nice talking with you at the Hamfest over the weekend and I'm sure you are still catching up. Thanks in advance for updating this to "under consideration."
