FlexRadio Systems announces the immediate availability of SmartSDR v3.1.11. It is highly recommended that you download the appropriate version of the Release Notes to ensure an optimal software installation experience.

SmartSDR 3.1.11 can be downloaded from the FlexRadio Systems website. SmartSDR v3.1.11 is a maintenance release containing software fixes for version 3 of SmartSDR for Windows, SmartSDR for Maestro, SmartSDR for M models, SmartSDR CAT, and DAX.

A software license for the FLEX-6000 is required to run SmartSDR v3.x

If prompted to upgrade your SmartSDR license, obtaining and validating a license for your FLEX-6000 software defined radio is a simple process.  Once the radio and client have network access to the Internet, just load any version of the SmartSDR v3.x software on your PC or Maestro. In the radio chooser, if a radio requires a license, a status message will indicate a license is required before connecting to the radio and updating the firmware.  A “Buy” button is also presented so that you can conveniently purchase a SmartSDR v3.x license (which is inclusive of v2.x) using our Online Store. Please see the SmartSDR Release Notes for details regarding purchasing a SmartSDR software license for your radio.
