Save to all bands checkbox

It would be helpful to have a checkbox under TX profiles for "save profile to all bands".

Most profiles I create are going to use the same TX settings across HF. So instead of starting at one end of the HF bands and saving the profile, moving a band and saving again, etc, it would be nice to just check a box and save once.

You could still go back and tweak a band or two with the current method afterwards if needed.

I would also get some good use out of that feature! Thanks

Profiles are band agnostic.  It saves only the slice receiver frequency.

Can you elaborate on that a little more?

I cant imagine this is not possible for the developers.

I am just talking about the TX profile. You are saying the TX profile is associated with a slice and not the band?

No, the global profile.  TX and Mic have nothing to do with panadapters and slice receivers.  This is all outlined in the SmartSDR Software Users Manual.

Yea I get the Global part. But just want to set a TX profile at "x" watts and other settings and save it to all bands.

If I understand the process correctly I have to make my TX profile on 160 (as an example) and save it. Move to 80 meters and re-save it, move to 40 and re-save and keep going.

We differentiate different radio states (parameters) in different profiles.  The TX profile does not save panadapter and slice frequency data, that is done at the global profile level.  A global profile links to a TX and Mic profile.  So what you are asking for breaks the core profile hierarchy by associating panadapter and slice frequency data at the TX profile level.

To accomplish what you want to do, you have to create specific global profiles to set power levels for the different bands.

Well that may be. But from a customer standpoint its a pain to have to save the TX profile over and over for each band and repeat for each new TX profile.
