Flex Knob for Remote

edited March 2019 in SmartSDR for Windows
Can the Flex Knob be used in a remote setup with a laptop only? IE, not physically at my radio in my house, but want to have the versatility of the Flex Knob while I'm doing it.

    YES. It is recognized locally by your laptop. As a matter of fact, even if at home the knob always plugs to a USB port of the PC where SmartSDR software resides.... in your case your laptop. The flex wheel doesn't connect to the 6xxx radio, at least for 6300, 6500 and 6700.

    Yes, as VE6WZ notes in another post this works quite well.

    Thanks fellas, I guess I didn't search back far enough in the forums. Or lack of caffeine after the contest and I missed it!
