  1. I often use the Analog/Digital button to switch into analog mode. This analog mode has an advantage over using the rig natively for analog since it can benefit from using the mic/speaker sound system on the PC. I noticed the analog audio from the PC can sound a bit scratchy. Can consideration be made for improvements to analog mode? This would ease switching back and forth to digital keeping me more engaged with FreeDV.
    Larger button sizes for frequently used buttons like Start, Analog/Digital & PTT would be helpful as well as an option to automatically engage digital mode on pre-defined digital frequencies and analog mode on others.
