    For scanning and recording using Audacity this is great... Play with the Squelch set the DAX trigger and the VOX in Audacity and it's very smooth.  Built in hang time on the scan is a big help when waiting for the reply. 

    Thanks Mark

    Hi Mark, i think it will be very suitable if you add in the new version  - "Global Profile Macro" where possible to select not only Global profile but start an external applications as before profile intiiated and after initiation of profile. It will be good Smart  Management  for operation modes

    Mark, FRStack is great and the meter window is a very useful addidition.
    Can you make it transparent with white fonts and not so widely spaced? This way
    it would integrate better into SmartSDR. Could be made optional...

    BTW you and the other SSDR API programmers out there are doing a
    great job and a most useful service to us all !

    I use FRStack to tune with my keypad, to use memories much easier than
    with the original SSDR memory tab and to monitor my Flex-6500. Other
    great programs are Mark's CMDmicro and the W2RF SDR-Bridge.

    Thanks and 73, Alex DH2ID

    Mark has published the new version of FRStack:


    with a transparent meter window, which integrates beautifully into SmartSDR


    Another highlight is FRStack's ability to update automatically.

    Thank you, Mark, awesome!
