Flex 6400M and CQWW CW Issues
I operated the CQWW CW contest this past weekend. I had FRStack, Stream Deck and N1MM running during the contest. Slice A was 40 Meters and Slice B was 80 meters. I noticed that for some reason the 6400M Screen was freezing at times, or when it was active there was a latency between turning the dial and frequency changing on the screen.
Normally I use Reverse Beacon Telnet when I operate a contest. But there is a good possibility it was too much with spots active on the 6400M to handle this. I then switching telnet addresses and went to W3LPL. That seemed to make things a little better. I then remember that I had spots active in FRStack. So I went into options and removed the telnet address from FRStack. I even went into the spots menu and reduced the volume of Spots to 1. That helped to make things a whole lot better.
The only time I have ever experienced such a lag in the system is when I tried to activate Swisslogger. That definitely put's a huge amount of stress not only on your computer system, but on SmartSDR. I was told from one of the developers of Swisslogger that it cannot handle the large volume of spots from Reverse Beacon. In fact they advise not using Reverse Beacon.
Has anyone else experienced this with there Flex M Version. I was told that perhaps using the Smart Control option of SmartSDR and turning off the monitor on the M would help. In that way I could still utilize the knobs but perhaps not experience the significant latency that was evident Friday evening. All in all I had to reboot my 6400M at least 3 to 4 times on Friday evening.
On Saturday and Sunday there was no delays. So whatever I did, must have worked.
