Re: QCX Wish List #qcx

The first of those I agree, it needs doing and would be very helpful. I notice it too. And sometimes when I double-left-click to adjust RIT, I forget to press the left button again... then I come to my turn to transmit and the key does nothing! That's annoying too though I soon remember why so it's only a short delay. This change will be useful and should be easy. It's on my list...
The second of those, tuning indication... would be very nice but I suspect not easy. Remember the QCX has a humble 20MHz 8-bit ATmega328. How much program memory is available, and how to implement limited FFT fast enough for a tuning indicator... is an interesting and challenging question. I don't say impossible. Just not very easy.
QSX, KX3, K3 etc all have much more powerful DSP processors inside. This feature will be in the QSX for sure. I will have to contemplate more carefully how (or if) to achieve it on QCX.

1. I would like to see an option to allow me to Transmit while the RIT Offset is still being displayed on the second line (when the RIT has been activated by a double click of the left button). Whenever I had this feature enabled, that would override the Send and/or Receive CW Decoding on that second line if I had either of those enabled also. Rationale: Whenever doing weak signal work, it is often necessary to do frequent retuning to pull out the received station's signal. Having the RIT always available whenever receiving would facilitate that.
