SmartSDR "monitor profile' ?


I was watching the 2019 video by W4AX of FRS and he stated that there is a "monitor profile built in to the software" that would allow me to listen in to my ham friend that is using my radio via SmartLink. I see nothing about that in SmartSDR. Is it still a feature ?

    From Sec 21.4.5. of the 6400M/6600M User Guide: the Monitor controls are found in the TX Menu. Monitor mode is enabled by tapping the MON button….When operating in multiFLEX with multiple Stations connected, when MON is on, the transmit audio will be heard from whichever station is transmitting.”

    Note that MON button is visible in TX Menu when radio is in an audio (e.g., SSB) mode.

    I assume other SmartSDR clients have similar MON controls.

    Interesting Neil, thanks. I saw several messages saying that this function does not work. I will try it when my neighbour ham next connects to my station. Thanks
