No indication of Fwd Pwr


Every now and then the Fwd Pwr, SWR and Temp meeters stop showing values. Working 100% remote so this is a good info to have. It's the same on both SmartSDR for Windows and Maestro.

Anyone else with this issue?

    When the meters fail to work remotely it is an indication of lost data between the radio and the user.

    Something external to the radio and the radio client is impacting the communication.

    Ok... Seen other reports of the same issue so I was thinking it's a sw bug... I had the problem before but a lokal reset... (unplugging the 220v) did the trick.

    However now I'm home again this is not an option. I was planning to install a switch at my last visit but I forgot it at home... Anyway it's sad that Flex did not design a remote on/off mains switch. It feels kinda strange not to be able to switch the power on/off remote. Just have it in Standby all the time...


  • Mike... Now it's working again. Without the reset... Any idea what it can be that is impacting the communication? Everything else works flawless.
