Is there a way to read the temperature of the finals from inside of SmartSDR for Windows?

I can read the temperature of the finals and other things on my iPad from inside of SmartSDR for iOS but I can’t see how to do this from SmartSDR for Windows. I would rather be able to do this with SmartSDR for Windows rather than having to run another program like DDUtil on my already over-taxed old computer. Looking forward to your answers!

David, N4IW

    You have to use FRStack on your PC. http://www.mkcmsoftware.com/Flex/Index

    You can't use SmartSDR to do this at this time.

    Thanks everyone for your answers. I appreciate it and have some new Apps to try out I suppose. I was hoping this was possible inside of SmartSDR like it is on SmartSDR iOS but it seems it is not yet possible.


  • You can use the SDRMonitor utility from K9DUR. k9dur.info
  • Here is a look at the SDRMonitor utility on my Flex 6600 while listening to 4 fire control frequencies in San Jose.
  • I use a small utility called "Flex Meter: version 1.2. Have had it for several years, but I am not able to find it on the internet for some reason. If you would like, email or message me and I will get you a link.

    I have now been using FR Stacks for quite awhile and it does a great job for me. It’s exactly what I need. Thanks Mike!

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
