Control/management/logging with two FlexRadios

Hi all,

I am now the owner of two radios. Each one located in a different country, each one operated remotely with specific country call sign. I maintain a PC and a high speed internet connection on each site.

I can also connect with them over Smartlink from my PC, iPad and iPhone.

Now what I am trying to achieve is to have a distinct operating and logging for each one.

That means contesting capabilities too and casual DX. I operate CW, SSB and digital modes (FT8 included)

I would love to have all Flexradio settings preserved in software (logging or contesting for each one) and just be able to switch between them.

My idea would be to create distinct windows 11 user profiles and do a complete setup for every one. It could be the easiest way?

Is there anybody out there who is running such an environment?

What should be the best practices? Separate software instances or can be centralized?

I appreciate any input that you may have on the above.

    Hi Val

    All the radio settings are preserved in the radio. Not the PC, so that should help. When you switch radios, it will load the profiles from the target radio.

    I run 3 radios all the time. A remote HF radio. A local VHF/UHF radio and a test radio. Each time I reconnect to a specific radio, it recalls the settings from the radio in use.

    And, to make it easier, when I bring up CAT, it remembers the settings for the PC which makes it much easier on logging programs since it doesn't have to connect to a different serial port.

    I use HRD for Logging and it allows me to have multiple log books open at the same time. I only use the LogBook part of HRD and then I let SliceMaster provide the frequency data to the log book.

    To make it even easier, JTDX (and WSJTx) will push your QSO's right into the log book for you (they call it a QSO Forwarder).

    That should give you some ideas.
