various different filter bandwidths, I want the filter to be easy to
adjust. What could be easier than grabbing the edge of the highlighted
filter area in the waterfall and putting it where you want?
It's interesting watching users who are at least somewhat familiar with
the idea of SDR use lysdr for the first time - usually they've got their
heads around all the various complex interactions with the tuning scale
in about the first 30 seconds...
- I don't know if suggestions for it are best served here but there is a Yahoo group for it.

I would suggest giving up a small portion of the waterfall for this or it might fit using just tic boxes if other things are moved.

Other seasoned SDR users might have more valid reasons to keep things where they are. Thanks for all your hard work with SDRSharp!
