Will Maestro work between two radios?

tgiro01 Member ✭✭
I ordered a new 6400 which is currently in the "Manufacturing Queue", with a Maestro. Then I just purchased a 'previously loved' 6600M. The two radios will be on different HF antennas, with one of them, possibly, used with a 2 meter transverter.

Will I be able to switch back and forth between radios easily, or will this require a reboot of the Maestro to move from one radio to the other?

    Yes, you can switch from one to the other without re-booting. I don't have a Maestro, so I can't give you the fine details.

    Since the 6600 is an M model, if the front panel is in use, the second Maestro will connect in MultiFlex mode. This is not bad, just something to be aware of. You can put the 6600 M into SmartControl mode and have the Maestro connected without MultiFlex.

    Take a look at the Maestro manual chapter 6 (Connecting to a Radio), chapter 5 (MultiFlex) and chapter 9 (SmartControl) for more info.

    It sounds a bit confusing at first, but once you see how it works, it is all fairly easy.

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.
