SmartSDR on Linux



  • WX7YWX7Y Member ✭✭✭

    I could only get it to EVER run on one particular computer so that was all for NOT so I gave up on it but the MAC version may give a Linux program so Idea's to have it run native on Linux

    At this point in time, you must have MacOS, or preferably Windows, in order to update software in the Flex6xxx series. If you have an "M" model (or a Maestro) close by, you can run all of your digital apps on Linux using the DAX and CAT for Linux written by KC2G. Not straight forward, but doable.

    Not Linux, but close. There is an iOS app, iPad, etc.

    What would it take for nDAX to work with SmartSDR V2. I had to part with $100 just for this app. My goal is to get my Flex 6300 working with HamPI Digital modes. nCAT seems to work ok so far but mDAX, not so much. Fails on launching Pulse.

    Hi Jim

    Thanks to the TCP/IP ports on the radio being available for any application, Linux operation is very doable.

    Someone has to write it from the Linux community. However, to date, no one is interested in doing it (or, hasn't shared it).

    How about you? Or maybe some of your Linux friends?
