SdrDx offers the ability to remap all of its keyboard-accessible functions to any key combination. So there is a caveat to all references to keystrokes in the documentation; the keystrokes mentioned are in the standard configuration (which you can get back to any time using the controls available by pressing ), and may be incorrect or unavailable depending on what modifications you make to the function-to-key mapping. Having said that, the documentation uses the following conventions:
x represents the x key on your keyboard, pressed by itself.

According to long-standing amateur radio and SWL tradition, both homebrew and commercial, I use terse two- or three-letter acronyms ("TLAs") for as many panel features as possible. This ensures maximum confusion, while incidentally saving considerable user interface space.
In order to learn to operate the radio, you have to learn the acronyms. Once you learn them, an upgrade will very likely change them. Also, I move them around as I see fit. This keeps you busy and entertained, and out of bars. Don't complain about it, or I'll change them again right now.
Ok, more seriously, if this is aggravating you, please re-read the introduction. And →Left-click to enable tooltips.
