Don't forget the remote pod also has 15 buttons on it which are also fully
programmable.  This is quite a nice convenience and makes the remote pod
a much required item for me.

It looks like the next BETA of the 32 bit Pegasus Plus software is about
ready to hit the web. I have been lucky enough to play with it and could not
resist posting a screen shot.

You can see the image at http://ctiowa.com/pegplus.htm

Couple things that I find amazing about this software is the digitally
filtered bandscope and the new "super mouse". I have no idea what the mouse
function is really called but that is the first thing that comes to mind.
This basically allows you all the same functions as a remote POD (and
probably more) using an off the shelf mouse with the "wheel" on it. If I had
the opportunity to use this first I would never have bought the remote POD.

The scope is simply amazing. As you can see from the above link the scope
resolution is very detailed and highly usable. The example screen shot shows
two vertical lines on the scope and in this case, the green is VFO A and the
blue is VFO B which corresponds to the digital display colors. By left
clicking your mouse on the scope display you can monitor any frequency on
that displays spectrum and a quick right click will set that point to either
VFO A or B, or the scratch pad. The newest version allows you to configure
your interface colors including the scope, backgroud, grid,etc. It is pretty
apparent the programmer is an ex Tektronix guy !

There are so many other things that I can not begin to cover them. These are
the two things I am drooling over this second.

So a little show and tell for Peg/Jupiter owners. Couldn't resist. Not sure
when he plans on posting the new 2.9 version but I would think in the next
day or two.
