SWR Plotter software and Flex radios

TomTom Member
I have installed SWR Plotter 6k sofware but it does not connect to my F6700. My radio is connected to the PC dirrectly and apparently it creates problem with connecting to SWR Plotter. Was someone able to make SWR Plotter working in this configuration?

I also installed SWR Plotter to use it with my Flex 3000 but I am not sure which COM port has to be used for connection to PSDR.
Plotter's manual does not explain it.

All  comments/suggestions about this matter will be appreciated.

Tom, SP7WT

    SWR Plotter 6k runs here without any problems.
    My Flex-6500 is connected to my DSL router/DHCP server through a switch,
    though. Could you try if this works for you?

    Tom, I have SWR plotter working fine with my PC connected directly to the Flex 6500. Make sure that the antenna tuner is bypassed in your 6700. You might try uninstalling and redownloading SWR plotter. Good luck. John, W8AGS

    Tom, I should have mentioned that I always start SSDR before starting the Plotter. I don't believe it will work with the Flex 3000. If you find that it does, let us know. I also have a 5000A to use . John, W8AGS

    I use it with my Flex-3000. It just connects via the CAT port. In my case COM1.

    I just realized I am using SWR Plotter 2.0.2 for the Flex-3000, not the SWRPlotter6K . Steve does support PowerSDR utilities on his site listed above in downloads.

    N7VR Thanks for your reply. I'll have to set it up on my 5000A. John, W8AGS

    I got one 10 meter plot out of the software.

    Worked pretty well. Very simple to use.

    I lost my 6500 audio so had to restart the radio and smartsdr to get it back.

    Going to email the authors.

    It has great promise.

    Connected the flexradio  to switch and to router not direct.
