SDR has never been easier!
SmartSDR is now available for your Mac.
It has never been easier to operate your FlexRadio 6xxx Radio.
SmartSDR for Mac is the big brother of SmartSDR for iOS.
However, it is a complete separate native Mac Version with many additional features.
It does not use Catalyst and thus it provides the full Mac look and feel.
External Software support
However, if you like to use your external Software, SmartSDR for Mac has an integrated CAT and DAX interface.
You need to have a FlexRadio Signature Series Rig such as the Flex-6300, 6400, 6400M, 6500, 6600, 6600M, 6700 or 6700R device.
To run the App, you need a Mac running at least macOS 10.15 (Catalina). There is no relevant RAM or Hard drive requirement, but a fast CPU would be an advantage if you like to use multiple windows at the same time.
Your Radio needs to be connected with a LAN cable to your local Network. Your Mac can be connected to your local Network using a LAN Cable or WiFi.
