New Flex user here...6500/Maestro and am wondering if there is a SPOT function in the Maestro somewhere.

Still navigating things in the menus so might have missed it.

Many thanks for any info.

I'd clarify by saying No and dropping the "yet".  The screen may be space limited to do this on the Maestro.

Could the SPOT function be enabled by a PREFERENCE button?

Wouldn't need to see it on the screen...you would know when it is ON/OFF but the tone.

Sorry for fat-finger typo.

Would really like a "spot" button for CW zero beating!  How about it Flex?

Just zero beat using the panadapter.  You dont need a spot tone...

Hi Joe,
There is an idea on the list for "auto zero beating"  a CW signal when click tuning.  It is number 1 on the list by votes.  Would this work and do the same thing, and maybe faster? 

https://community.flexradio.com/flexradio/topics/ssdr_autozerobeat_on_cw_click_tune

The original idea is for SSDR but if  you could add some comments to the idea to implement it on a Maestro as well.  It doesn't hurt to ask.
