Roadmap inclusion proposal

The roadmap shows major features we are working on that we believe are core functionality our customers are looking for. As we talked with customers about the scope feature, we found that even though it was a feature of PowerSDR, most customers did not use it and stated that it was not a feature they were interested in having quickly. For this reason alone, we dropped it from the roadmap. This is not to say that we will not do a scope function, just that it is no longer a key feature that we are promising in this time-frame.
The same thing can be said of predistortion -- we've been asked about it a lot, but when we ask which is more important to you as a customer: predistortion or remote capability, remote almost always get the nod. We asked the same question at the FlexRadio Banquet at the Dayton Hamvention and out of ~180 customers, only 2-3 raised their hands for predistortion over remote. For us the message is clear: focus on network and bring the other capabilities out after.
I hope that we've demonstrated that while we are working on the big-ticket items, we are also innovating and creating smaller features all along the way. Band edge markers is a personal favorite of mine that's I've been discussing with staff members at FlexRadio for over two years. I want to get to this and make it work well, but networking and the other items on the roadmap will be our focus. We'll fit in other items as we have time.
I like to suggest that in the future the poll questions should be place here rather than at the conventions.
I believe this menu has more active participants and a wider audience with diverse interest than any other place.
For example, pose the question and give the forum members a week or two to vote on the proposal.
Only one vote (remember we are not all in Chicago) per radio purchased.
On the ballot the purchaser name and call (if they have one) is verify by Flex records.
This would be the fairest way to get the members feeling on what want or like to see in their radios.
Let the majority rule!
