- Setting the Low and High frequencies is not intuitive
- Operators can't see the Low and High (Start and End) frequencies for the scan
- The scan limits are set to the VHF and UHF band limits (VFO A / B) but this is pointless, as the operator may have set VFO A to UHF
I think we will need to have a special Scan mode for the VFO screen where it displays and operates differently.
I think that in Scan mode the Rx and Tx frequencies will need to be the same, as this would remove the need to display the Tx frequency, and hence the bottom line of the display could be used to display the Start and End frequencies.
So the line showing "Ta" (or "Tb"), would be able to display "F1" / "F2". I don't want to use "Fs" and "Fe" because those texts would need to be translated and I'm not sure that using 2 letter acronyms are that meaningful, whereas F1 and F2 are obviously 2 frequencies.
We could use the Function + Down arrow to move the input focus to the F1 / F2 , then perhaps use Right and left to change from F1 to F2 display and data entry
Or... Use a smaller font for F1 and F2, and not include the text F1 / F2 , but I think we'd need to drop the last digit from the frequency, as currently we show the freq to the nearest 10Hz, and actually the RF chip doesn't have that resolution.
So we may need to only be able to set the scan start and end frequencies to the nearest 1kHz or perhaps even the nearest 100kHz.
If we show the Start and End frequencies to the nearest 1kHz, we could probably display both in the large font
"439.199 / 490.375"
Then we'd need some way to set this.
Perhaps press Function + Down could put the radio into a special data entry mode, where you enter the whole thing (both numbers) and then press Green to confirm.
So then the scan limits would be easily visible
By default, perhaps the scan limits (Start / End) should be set to the current frequency, and the current frequency +1Mhz or perhaps the current freq -1Mhz and the current freq +1Mhz
