Hmmmm....  Yes and No....
If I am listening to the speaker and the background noise level in the shack
is high and I increase the audio level, then having the side tone level
increase with it is good/helpful...
If I am listening with headphones and I increase the audio volume to better
hear a weak station, then having the side tone level increase is
So, Bill's suggestion should be menu selectable for the given situation....
Alternatively, I feel sidetone should be available on a front panel knob...
since I never use the rit knob, I would vote for being able to menu select
this knob for side tone volume instead of rit...and the xit skirt for
changing the sidetone frequency...
