Still missing the “opposite sideband” on CW mode. The ESDR Software knows DIGL and DIGU. Why it does NOT know CWL and CWU? The current CW mode is marked on other radios mostly as CWR (CW reversed) – when tuning UP the beat note goes LOW. More natural is the opposite tuning, ie. when tuning UP the beat note goes UP. This is marked as CW (= NORMAL CW) on most radios.

It is related to DX operation on low band edges where the ZERO BEAT denotes the actual frequency, ie. dial at 3500.000 kHz and ZERO BEAT note means that you operating exactly on 3500.000 kHz. Remember, please that older radios does not have the exact band limits built-in.

I would expect in next version actual style of tuning marked as CWR and newly introduced option CW in opposite mean, ie. when tuning UP the beat note goes UP. This should be the standard.

This article is a stub. You can help by expanding it providing more/new ideas and suggestions. Don’t hesitate to borrow a good idea from an older proven radio.
