Are there any other custom skins for the 6000 radios?

I have a 6400 and would like to know if there are any available custom skins.

    As I posted on the Facebook page, there are no custom skins for SmartSDR.

    Such a shame, but I guess that is what you get for propriety SDR radios. It really is a shame though, I am having a lot of fun with my Hermes Lite 2 😀 Loving the ability to run different skins for a change.

    Do not get me wrong I love the 6400M but the skin is boring for want of a better term.

    Whatever floats your boat 😁

    I like the customization with Thetis on my Anan 8000DLE and my Hermes lite 2. It is just eye candy, but it can be fun too!

    Yea, it's NOT the Radio that your customizing it's the software "PowerSDR" program that has been around at least since the mid 90's for the FLEX1000 and other experimental hardware and uses open source code so it is easy to be modified by the user and the deep down updates by very talented programmers with out jumping through all the hoops for Licensing and Copywrite, even in the early 2000's we were getting several updates a day which was really cool to come home from work and have a new version of PowerSDR waiting to download and play with. Then the Radio users started to be a pain and so they shut down the early releases open Beta stuff, We had it nice back then to be sure.

    I MISS how powerful PowerSDR is and it did a lot of things clear back then that "SmartSDR" hasn't got to yet but I don't want to take away from "SmartSDR" the things they have accomplished that no other radio's in the world can come close to.

    I've had two Anan 7000DLE and loved running Thetis on it, but the Hardware was lacking in my opinion and the lack of direct Remote Capability was the Deal breaker for me.
