Slave Slices -- idea to Synch up 2 slices

There are benefits to zooming a slice in all the way but obviously you can't see much of the band. On the zoomed in view you get a lower noise level and precise tuning adjustment.  

For a wider view of the band, you can open a second panadapter and set the zoom out to cover the full segment of interest.  If you see a signal in the wide view you want to work,  it would be nice if there was a fast way to get the slice in the zoomed in panadapter to same frequency.

Here is the idea -- Slave or lock two slices so that if you "click tune" in one the other moves also.   

Note: I'm using a workaround today utilizing DDUtil and a macro but it takes 2 clicks.  (one mouse click to tune the lower slice, one button press on the FlexControl  to activate the macro and move the upper slice)  It would be much nicer to slave the slices and do it all from SSDR with a single mouse click.

I don't think I've seen this suggested before but it may be somewhat related to the diversity enhancement.  Thoughts?

Upper slice is the zoomed in view
Lower slice is the wider view of the band segment

The Slave Slices (lock) was a misnomer for Diversity.  This was later renamed as Simple Diversity and delivered in v1.3.
