Ok. You need the wideband for good noise blanking so it is no waste:-)

The standard procedure would be to have AGC enabled and to
turn the volume bar in the baseband graph down to make the
noise hiss rather weak.

The problem with SSB squelch is that the SSB signal is likely to
be off frequency and that auto tuning is very difficult in SSB mode.
(An unprocessed voice is fairly easy, but when a good speech
processor has been used it is difficult. I have tried and failed...)

A squelch would operate on whatever comes out from the baseband
filter and it would be possible to set a threshold for average power
below which the output would be muted. Very easy, but there has
to be some kind of user interface with yet another control bar....
