Lock Spectrum

Add provision to "lock" spectrum and tune Mercury (and Penelope) within that window. This would conceptually be something like the second receiver function in PowerSDR. This could be useful, for example, in a CW contest where you don't want the spectrum display to move around when you pounce on another station. Or a RTTY contest, where you just want to see the data sub-band,or SSB...

Comment - simpler to add a second receiver I think. VK6APH 08:52, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Test Equip?

Could some of this code be used as digital test software for the HPSDR board set? I can imagine sending various 'commands' and testing for the 'correct' response. Richard Ames, VK2NRA 21:11, 2 June 2009 (UTC)


I can for-see doing fingerprinting of signals. Think of the advantage in contests if the computer 'automagically' tagged each of the signals on the bandscope with a callsign and changed the colour depending on whether you have logged a contact with them.... the rules will probably outlaw it!  :-) Regards, Richard Ames, VK2NRA 22:46, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
