FlexRadio Systems announces the immediate availability of SmartSDR v2.1.33 for the FLEX-6000 Signature Series SDRs. SmartSDR v2.1.33 is a General Availability (GA) maintenance release containing fixes for SmartSDR for Windows, SmartSDR for Maestro, SmartSDR CAT and DAX.
SmartSDR 2.1.33 can be downloaded from the FlexRadio Systems web site. Please download and review the SmartSDR v2.1.33 Release Notes prior to installing SmartSDR v2.1.33 to ensure an optimal software installation experience.
A software license for the FLEX-6000 is required to run SmartSDR v2.1.33. If your FLEX-6000 has been authorized to run a previous version of SmartSDRv2, re-authorization is not required.
All owners of the Limited Edition (LE) FLEX-6700 and FLEX-6500 SDRs or radios sold after May 19, 2017, have been pre-authorized for SmartSDR v2 and do not require the purchase of a SmartSDR v2 license. To run SmartSDR v2 on all other radios requires the purchase of a software license for the radio.
Obtaining and validating a license for your FLEX-6000 software defined radio is a simple process. Once the radio and client have network access to the Internet, just load any version of the SmartSDR v2 software on your PC or Maestro. In the radio chooser, if a radio requires a license, a status message will indicate a license is required before connecting to the radio and updating the firmware. A “Buy” button is also presented so that you can conveniently purchase a SmartSDRv2 license using our Online Store. Please see details below regarding purchasing a SmartSDR software license for your radio.
