It would be really nice if we have a "disable PA while tuning" option as a part of the configuration of EESDR.
Here is one use case
1) I am using a modified marine amplifier made by Furuno along with a MFJ 998 tuner and the tuner needs 10 to 15 watt for tuning.
2) PTT control is there with an external relay
3) When the Tune button is pressed the Amplifier also triggered and the output is close to 400 to 500W and the tuner will never tune. with that power level
4) I can disable the PA from the E Code or from the UI, but if I missed this step then the tuner never tunes and it is not good to drive the amp without proper match.

Above mentioned case is not an issue in case of amplifiers like SPE1.3KFA as the amp itself is smart enough to detect the tune cycle.
If the "disable PA while tuning" option is available , then the software can disable the PA while the user pressing the tune button and restore to its original setting once the tune button got disabled .

Really appreciate if "disable PA while tuning" option is considered during the next releases.
