We need a new set of superlatives for the Flex 6000

I thought the receive function was great until V1.2.17. 

The display with the smaller tag and type style is much easier to read, especially in a busy screen.  (Did I miss the "WIDE" tag?).  The panadapter is cleaner but I expect that is all about the changes to the receiver and filtering.  I'm sure my noisy environment didn't change the same day as this upgrade but the solid underlying hash has been replaced by specific birdies at harmonic intervals.

Thanks for the additional zoom in; it is so detailed now that the scale duplicates 100hz grid squares (50Hz per scale line). 

About filters:  Other than how clean the display is, I have run the filter width down to 10Hz on a 6M beacon with no problems; very clear copy.  Listened to a W1AW pileup on 20M and seem to be better able to pick out the calls that W1AW.  

I need something better than WOW, WONDERFUL, EXCEPTIONAL; knowing that it will only get better.  We need a new set of superlatives! 

Thanks Flex - Your effort shows.

Whenever I am confronted with something so great, so fantastic, so overwhelming, I always say 
"That is just Tim!"

Please define:  What is a "Better than Steve" or "Better than Tim" superlative?  Have to find the people first!

I haven't gotten home to upgrade to 1.2.17 yet.  Do you mean that they made the display on my 6500 even better than it was already?  I didn't think that was possible!
