This small floating Micropanel makes a great alternative to the fully-fledged receiver panel. It is useful for situations when you are working on other things while listening to your radio in the background. The panel always stays on top and you can drag it around easily.
The Micropanel is much smaller and has a fewer number of controls than the full receiver panel, so not all the receiver facilities are available, however it does allow tuning to a frequency, setting the modulation mode, volume adjustment and muting. It has a frequency readout and a signal strength indicator.
