I’ve bought SA44 + TG44 and have played with it for several days. I like the Spike software, but I see some things, which can be improved easily in the GUI.
1. When number of sample points is high (much larger than window width in pixels, so many samples are shown in one row), it’s very hard or even impossible to pick by mouse a highest sample to see its frequency and power. I suggest to pick sample, closest to the mouse by x,y distance. So it makes very easy to catch the top of the peak.
2. There’s no indication that “store through” is active and corrects the graph. I suggest to change this button color or lock it in pushed state when “store through” correction works. So I can press to apply correction, and then press again to reset the correction (now I need to change some other parameter to reset the correction).
3. Vertical lines on the screen are simply useless, they aren’t marked with some rounded frequency marks. When I see on the saved screen I can’t estimate frequency from those lines.
4. I would be great to allow to zoom in (out) the frequency scale by mouse wheel (without changing any parameter, and rescan the zoomed range again). For example to capture the long high density graph and then look into some details in some place.

Thank you very much for the feedback. These are very good suggestions. We log all customer requests and implement them as we have time. Regarding point #2, in the lower left corner of the graticule you will see an uncalibrated message when the store through is not active. I realize this is not as convenient as a pressed button, but still serves a similar purpose and will hopefully help you determine when you need to perform another store-thru. Thank you again.

Thank you, I didn’t see the “uncalibrated” message.
And as already mentioned, it would be great to see 5MHz RBW option in Spike. Now I need to switch to old software for it.
