Hi All

We have created a new category called SmartLink to use for SmartLink discussions.  

With SL, we can also expand into all those items that may related to remote operations, such as:
  • Remote control of Antennas, Amps, etc.
  • Remote power on and off of your Radio
  • SmartLink issues
  • Remote Network Bandwidth issues
  • Remote Ideas
And, just about all those that related when you are not at home.

Mike

    What a great idea Michael. There are so many issues that one could raise that we now need another moderator as poor Tim has more than enough work as it is. Perhaps you? What do you think Tim?

    To start the ball rolling, I am in the process of modifying my THP HL2KFX to provide auto band changing as that model is manual switch only. With the BCD option now available from Flex with the parallel cable, it makes changing bands on  the linear remotely, a breeze.  I am intending to use the Unified Microsystems BCD-14 board, to read the band data and switch bands on the linear. If you have a manually switched linear, this might be an option for you.

    I have been using remote since I got Maestro. It works flawlessly for the most of time now, but it took me a while to build it the way I wanted.
    I use the Maestro to control the 6600M radio at home. The antenna rotor is controlled by PstRotator server/client software and KPA/KAT 500's are remotely controlled by Elecraft's remote software.
    To be able remotely reboot, turn On/Off any of my shack equipment and computers, I purchased Digital Loggers Pro Switch and DIN Power Relay.
    I will publish more details if anyone is interested.

    Michael,
    What ever happened to Multi-client? Is it dead? Its been at least 19 months since I first heard there was consideration to create it... What is the status?

    All has been quite for sometime regarding a software update. I'm anticipating and hope for a pre-Christmas release. New software often is like getting a new radio. Anyways on this topic, I surely hope Flexradio will finally address the ability to switch antennas on the Antenna Genius from the Maestro. Talk about integration and how nice that would be.
