Just loaded SmartSDR v1.3.0 and SmartSDR CAT v1.3.0.0 to my 6500. I use DDUtil to control my Tokyo Hy Power Antenna Tuner and Amp. for band changes. So far there are no problems and all is working well. Bands change promptly and tune up is instant.

    Good to hear some good news with the new update....  I have been holding off upgrading to V1.3 until the dust settles and I find out if any big issues crop up....  I run a 6500 with DDUtil controlling my band switch via the LPT port, KPA500, Alpha 87A, LP-100A and 3ele SteppIR....

    I think you're only the second good report I have seen on the community running more than just the radio...

    Any other good reports??

    Dear Flex:

    Good job with 1.3!  Keep up the good work.  Each update gives us a better SDR Radio-Server.

    And another 'attaboy' from here.  Got the profiles working after clearing the persistence database and CWX is really going to be nice.  It appears that the EQ settings are not saved in profiles.  Is that correct?

    EQ Settings are NOT Saved under the Global Settings Tab in the Profile Manager

    They are saved under the Transmit Settings Tab in the Profile Manager

    Much more flexible that way

    I run a 6700 with DDUtil controlling Expert Amp SPE-2K-FA, Yaesu GX2800-DXA Rotor, LP-100A Wattmeter, Wavenode WN2d Wattmeter,  4ele SteppIR MonstIR via SDA100 Controller

    No issues  - Everything follows the frequency perfectly  and I usually run the entire station remotely via my iPad

    Thanks to all the positive comments from V1.3 users.  I installed V1.3 today and everything seems to be working just fine.... Many thanks to the Flex team!

    I installed 1.3 the day of release and once I figured out how to setup the profiles they work 'clean and slick'. The part of the new release that I like most is that nothing that I use was 'broken' in the process. Even the slow AGC issue seems somewhat resolved. Good job! I hope the next release is as clean and painless!
