v1.437 From Marco, IS0KYB: AGC threshold bar, Passband overload mute
From the CHANGE_LOG file:
v1.437 March 6, 2021
From Marco, IS0KYB (thanks Marco!)
AGC threshold bar added to S-meter:
The white bar appearing above the green S-meter bar is the AGC threshold value
(from control panel AGC tab). The threshold dBm value can read on the
S-meter scale in equivalent S-units.
Passband overload mute:
Mutes the audio when the signal level in the passband exceeds a set value.
The value is defined by a new setting on the admin page config tab.
When active a "!" appears in place of the mute icon on main control panel.
Useful for example when a nearby transmitter would otherwise result in a
loud annoying signal. Mute recovery time uses existing squelch tail setting.
Added list of code contributors to _COPYRIGHT file.
Work in progress. If we missed your code contribution please email us.
We have hundreds of github issues and thousands of emails and forum posts to review.
Typing '/' alone into frequency box will restore the passband to the default value
for the current mode. Shortcut to shift-clicking over a mode button.
FFT extension: add help button, URL parameters, preset for RTZ.
Add mouseover popups to more buttons and menus on main control panel.
Removed more references to sdr.hu
The white bar in the S-meter is a very nice addition to keep track of the AGC setting. I really like that as it is a great reminder of where the AGC is set. It doesn't zero out when AGC is off and Manual is being used. Not a big deal, but worth the mention, I think.
I too like it, even if only as a reminder.
