software tx and rx indicators
#1
I have a question. Is there any chance to have software transmit and receive indicators on the TFT display, like the RTC and wunderground indicators? I prefer to not have things flashing at me, it's also very distracting when doing other stuff, so I would rather have a dot(s) on the screen, which isn't nearly as bright, blink on and off indicating transit and receive.

Is this possible and would you consider implementing it?

For that you need a RSSI enabled receiver. V2.0 BX-RM06  is supporting that but it's unclear to me how to read that pin. Signal on the DER pin is equal to DATA pin.

I think that the danner question isn't related to this matter...

We can't simulate a blinking LED on the TFT with the required flash rate. Even writing a small dot to the TFT display is a "very slow" process.
