Because you can use that slice then open 7 more slices to do other things simultaneously..you can have several people doing things simultaneously also...all in one transceiver.
I don't care what gene says... That can't be done with the qs1r... I have one and i know for a fact you can't do it. Gene pretends you can but you can't. Supposedly studio one will do it but I have yet to see a tranceiver that it woks with. I inquired with studio one and they said no...it doesn't work with the qs1r (multiple independant receivers).
So, somebody show me something that can do this. There isn't anything but I am up for being proven wrong.
I recently sold a 5000 and have a qs1r... So it isn't he pan adapter that impresses me...I am used to that.
Honest question: Other than being able to zoom out and see more spectrum, what is it you see so far in this video that makes it so exciting that you don't see in other SDR software implementations?
For example, what I see here is no more exciting than Studio One.
Just trying to understand how hams see themselves doing bigger better things based off the GUI shown in the video.
