SteppIR with Maestro?

 I just got my invoice, so the Maestro will be here soon. Will my SteppIR change frequency when tuning the Maestro?
I am using my 6700 with the SD-100 controler and DDutil. All works fine. What wil happen when I add the Maestro?

    good question

    my guess is the DDUtil - SteppIR interface will not work but I hope I'm wrong

    DDUTIL is how you need to,do it now. It runs on your main PC and works 100% with Maestro There is an enhancement request on the books to enable external device controls But don't know when it will happen as there is still a lot of other enhancement stuff to do first.

    I'm using DDUtil running on one of my shacks computers (sitting next to my 6500) connected to my network which controls my Elecraft KPA-500/KAT500 and KPA-100A.  It still runs and works fine while using the Maestro connected to my 6500.  If I want to see what DDUTil is doing I have to remote a laptop  into that shack computer.

    I have a Maestro on order. I was assuming SmartSDR CAT would still run on the shack PC driving my flex controller. Do I still need DDUtil?

    Running 6500, Maestro, Quadra, DDUtil(v3.2.4.04), 3el SteppIR with SDA100 controller. Using Passive Listener in DDUtil the SDA100 controller follows the Flexradio if connected via the Maestro or if SmartSDR is used on shack computer. I also have setup the band data setup on DDUtil so band changes on the 6500 are changed on the Quadra.
