Transmit power readout for QRP

  • Question
  • Updated 9 months ago
I sometimes enjoy using my 6600m on WSPR. I saw an old thread about possibly expanding the resolution of the power meter for low/QRP operators. Anyone know if this is still in the works?
I can 'sort of' guess about the power below 10W, it would be excellent to be able to switch the scale on the power meter. de ken K6WGX

I agree and also have a difficult time turning the power down with SDR when running remote.

Hi John and Ken,
This feature was part of another idea to improve the readability of the SWR scale.  It was submitted about 4 years ago.   The idea was marked "implemented" since the bars and scale was improved.  However the automated RF power scaling feature wasn't included.   Here is a link to the original idea. 

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

At  this point that scaling request is probably not on the list.  You might want to resubmit the scaling feature in a new idea request.  Feel free to use any of the mockups I made from the original idea.  One example below.
