Dear Friends 

I wonder if SmartSDR works on MacBook Pro,
can't find it on Apple Store when I look for it
I do from my iPhone and iPad but MacBook pro 


Any Idea

Thanks

    Here you go for the software.

    No, you can't run Phone apps on their desktop

    George - you have a couple of options. You can run SmartSDR on a Mac using a windows emulator (Parallels or VMWare). Alternatively, as Michael proposed, you can use the native MacOS DogPark SDR application, which is excellent. 73, Dave K1DLM

    It’s a great program and worth the $95

    May I suggest that you add three more pieces of software: xDax, xCat and Loopback. These are all essential pieces of software to use a Flex with a Mac. Loopback (not free) together with xDax provides DAX / Audio services for you, and xCat provides CAT services. xCat and xDax are free software kindly created and shared by Mario Illgen ([email protected]).

    Hi George. xDax / xCat can be had at https://dl3lsm.blogspot.com/ Loopback is at https://rogueamoeba.com/loopback/ (they have a free trial that eventually injects noise).

    Another vote for DogparkSDR.  I use it remote all the time.
