I had opened this topic for smarsdr 1.1.0, and it still present in 1.1.3; 
The problem: I start up in wsjt mode on 10m. Sigs are down around -108, I operate for an hour making contacts and then notice the band seems to be dying.. but it isnt, the floor is now up at -88..

close smartsdr, reboot radio; start smartsdr.
Floor now -108 and band has plenty of signals..

operating env:  win7 x64 w/dxlabs, jt65/jtalert

    Similar, but very infrequent, problem with 6500.  Cycling MOX or TUNE clears it for me.
    Have not had to reboot.  If this were an old-tech radio, I'd guess the ground side
    of an antenna relay was intermittently stuck open.

    I have this problem with my 6500 in the middle of a qso the radio goes deaf and several clicks of ptt or mox will restore the receive signals. It sounds and acts like the antenna does not switch back to receive. SWR shows perfect and transmit remains good.

    Same here with my 6500, a few clicks with the PTT and the signals come back (happens mainly on 75M, at least for me). It's a known problem, I assume it will be fixed sometime in a future update.
