I put together a Node-Red Flow to perform automatic SWR Sweeps using a Flex Radio Server.

Node-Red Flow to perform SWR Sweeps using a Flex Radio. Input the band, adjust the limits, adjust the increment, adjust the Tune Power, and let it run. Builds a data directory and text file named the same as the sweeping band. Data includes; Frequency, SWR, Date. Requires Flex Frequency, SWR, and MOX status inputs to be configured. I used FRStack as my source. Others can use their preferred sources (think if you have an external SWR Meter). I have uploaded a separate file with instructions for operation and setup.

Here is a screen shot of the Dashboard:

Here is a data file. The Flow will create the "SWR_Sweep" file in your Documents folder and name the txt file same as the sweep band. The file can be erased from the dashboard, or you can append a new sweep to the same band/file.

The Node-Red Flow file and instructions are uploaded to:

I can help with set-up if needed.
