FlexRadio Systems announces the immediate availability of SmartSDR v2.4.9 for the FLEX-6000 Signature Series SDRs. SmartSDR v2.4.9 is a General Availability (GA) release containing new features and fixes for SmartSDR for Windows, SmartSDR for Maestro, SmartSDR CAT and DAX.
SmartSDR 2.4.9 can be downloaded from the FlexRadio Systems website. Please download and review the SmartSDR v2.4.9 Release Notes prior to installing SmartSDR v2.4.9 to ensure an optimal software installation experience.
A software license for the FLEX-6000 is required to run SmartSDR v2.4.9. If your FLEX-6000 has been authorized to run a previous version of SmartSDRv2, re-authorization is not required.
If prompted to upgrade your SmartSDR license, 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.x 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 SmartSDR v2.x license using our Online Store. Please see details below regarding purchasing a SmartSDR software license for your radio.
The following highlights are SmartSDR specific items:
DAX is Supported When Using SmartLink: DAX has been optimized for efficient network operation, which allows it to be used in conjunction with SmartLink. Like using SmartSDR CAT, the SmartLink or locally connected radio must be selected from the Radio Chooser. Please note that due to DAX bandwidth optimizations, you will need to adjust your DAX TX and RX levels the current setting will be slightly lower in gain than with previous versions of DAX.
USB Cables Adds new CAT Commands: Three new CAT commands (MD, RX, TX) have been added to the USB Cable feature to support ACOM600s and Tuner 04AT.
Default Mic Profiles added for Inrad Microphones: New default microphone profiles for the Inrad M650 and M629 microphones.
TNF Remove All Option Added: An option to remove all previously created TNFs has been added to SmartSDR v2.4.9.
Multicolored S Meter: The S-meter how visually indicates signal strength by color from green progressing through yellow to red.
