Dale Martin, KG5U, shared several brilliant enhancement ideas:

YES...YES...YES (Anything to minimize unnecessary eye movement around a big

A brilliant idea, Dale

Actually, this has some practical derivations, IMHO. Like tied to a
Multi-Alarm capability to:
1. Auto-wake the operator in case of dozing off in the wee hours of the morning
2. Auto-reminder to backup if not set on AutoPilot
3. Auto-check for anything imaginable that can contribute to productivity
>2. The Auto-Cq thing, again... It would sure be nice to see Auto-CQ be

Another great idea.
