First of all, I really like it.
While working I had two points that I think could be improoved:
1 – The trace view with 100 dB of amplitude is good for SA and BB analysers, but probably not enough for SM ( could be 120 dB ). I know I can change the div setting, but we are all used to 10 dB/div. The problem is that the trace grid has a fixed spacing by 10. It could be nice to have this configurable ( 15 dB/div look weird and 20dB/div fills only half grid ) or have a spacing of 12 for SM. Please see attached pictures.
2 – Clicking into the grid will place the active cursor to the clicked frequency. Thats ok and good to handle, but not allways wanted. It would be nice to have a frequency lock for each cursor, especially if you use channel power cursors. While peak tracking keeps the normal cursor at the expected place, it does not work with channel power cursors. In this case it centers the CP Cursor on the highest peak not on the highest power for the defined bw. And clicking into the grid by accident will move the channelpower cursorto a mostly unwanted position.
Thanks for reading
