Re: [softrock40] Re: HDSDR 2.60 released
Since English is not my prime language I'll try to explain it with an
- I tune to 118.075, a local airport tower with the center frequency set
- After a while I want to remain listening on 118.075 but I want to have
more spectrum margin to the right where other frequencies like Approach
at 118.525 and others are located.
- Just with a right click pointing a convenient place in the spectrum I
move the spectrum coverage without losing my tune in 118.075. I can do
it in various steps if I want, of course the limit is the bandwidth
imposed by the sampling rate.
The important thing here is that you don't lose the channel that you are
listening to. Of course you can move the LO using a number of options
but you need to remember where you were and enter it again. You can move
the place where your tunning is located in the spectrum span and see
what happens above or below it, all in one operation that becomes automatic.
It is also useful when recovering a frequency from the Frequency
Manager and you want to relocate your spectrum.
I don't know if this example is illustrative enough, but the same is
applicable to exploring an HF ham band while listening on a spot and a
number of situations.
And just a remainder, could you make customizable the database location,
including the pathname in the profile? Using different H/W for HF and
V-UHF to have separate databases is very convenient (I already do it
renaming it but it is cumbersome and prone to fatal errors.
