    A BIG thanks to Darrin for the non-stop work and enhancements to the program. He breaths life into something that should not be considered mature or EOL (at least in my eyes). Thanks to Flex allowing committed developers access to the source code.

    Thanks for the hard work and the great features.  On my Win 10 system I get an error about a PAL dll when installing it

    Got it now, I needed to simply copy the files, I was making things too complicated.
    Thanks again.

    Perhaps I am just plain LAZY but for me.. I LOVE the automatic waterfall adjust feature.  The DX callsign feature in the waterfall is REALLY nice. Many thanks

    I can't find the option to display my own callsign at the top of PowerSDR, where the serial number is.  Is this capability removed ?

    By the way, i was able to make Powersdr crash while messing with the DXcluster addresses. Actually, it crashed a second time without messing with the addresses.  The second occasion seemed related to me closing the connection to the default cluster and then attempting a quick re-connect

    Its still there setup->general->options->custom title text.

    its just that the Beta signature pushes it over to the right a bit.

    The DX Spotter feature is very new, and still beta while I figure out how the DX spider actually works. Where Flex spends a lot a time Bullet Proofing their features, I do it as things pop up. RevR2 at least appears to have fixed the crashing due to incorrectly formatted spot data. I need to Bullet Proof the open/closing socket stuff.

    Yes, it was the socket closing that seemed to get confused.  A great feature though.  Do the spots in PowerSDR  decay after a specified time or are they displayed until the spotter is closed and reopened ?
    Again, many thanks for this great new feature.

    The newest spots push older spots off the list so the display is constantly updating. It also checks for dups now. The spot list is currently set to 60 spots I could add a timer as well

    Thanks for Spots in Panadapter. Makes me wish I kept my 5000 Now if only Flex would push this valuable and highly desired feature higher on its SSDR to do list.

    Ditto... looking forward to panadapter spots in SSDR.  Maybe we could talk Darrin into a 6300 ;-)             Great work Darrin !

    The auto settings in the waterfall is a great feature as well, after running my 5k again I got use to all the cool added features and when I went back to 6700 I really missed them.
    Glad I didn't sell the 5k

    Thanks Darrin great work.

    Always willing to listen. I try for features I can do quickly. I want to work on a Freq Scanner next, but just not sure how I want it to work?  But many suggestions have been from all of you (like adding the SWL bands, and the ability to add to any bands "band stack" )

    Roger, Roger !!

    Darrin, Great Features.

    Thanks for your efforts from all of us, and like others, I'm glad I have kept the 5000A.  Can you program ways to move the existing menus around, so that we can see more meters you created?  And is there a Donation **** !!

    Cheers

    Thanks Darrin, Great piece of work. Just installed it. One point, the tx text is squashed on the w/f display making it unreadable. Is this okay on the rx side.?
    This is worth a donation folks.

    The waterfall ID all depends on the speed of the waterfall on the receiving end.

    As well as the Low and High level settings and the resolution, etc. etc.

    The Flex has better resolution on the waterfall at lower Sample Rates, so it will show up better.

    Also you can hit the Auto Water Level when your transmitting to adjust the waterfall Low TX level.

    Also, the Wave-> TX gain will set the gain of the WaterFall ID output.

    (Lots of moving parts)

    Are talking about moving the button panels around? They will move out of the way of the Meters only when you expand the PowerSDR window slightly in the vertical direction. I can see everything on the screen properly when I run 1440 x 900.

    The Original PowerSDR meters were small in order for the minimum size to fit together (like a jig-saw puzzle). When I enlarged the footprint of the meters, it now requires a slightly larger vertical area.

    Morning Darrin

    Yes on moving the button panels around.  It would be nice to do a personal layout.  I have lots of room on my monitors to organize the pallets and your new meters.

    Once again thanks.

    PowerSDR Rev R6 is now up on my web site ke9ns.com/flexpage.html

    I now have DX Spotting and Shortwave Spotting on the Panadapter

    The DX cluster is now easier to log into

    The SWL database has over 12,000 spots

    I agree. I put PowerSDR on its own 22" monitor. I need to look into the possibility of allow you to move the panels around ???

    Darrin,  when you are bored and have nothing to do in life, any chance you can pay attention to the CWX functions in PowerSDR?  I really like the usefulness of CWX but can't help but think it can have a few extra bells and whistles.
