How to run (2) 6500's on the same PC?

Happy Holidays - how to run (2) 6500's on same PC - both on the same network - different IP addresses as it should be and FRS gave them 2 different names - Flex 6500 and Flex 65xx?

    Why would you purchase two 6500's and run them both.  Wouldn't have been better off getting a 6700?

    Not possible.  SmartSDR for Windows does not allow multiple instances of SmartSDR to run on the same PC. You should be able to do it in two different VMs on the same PC hardware, but I have never tried it.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
