6000 TX audio distorted after being on for a few days.
I have a Flex 6300 running SmartSDR v3.18 that I mostly use for remote operation on digital modes (FT8, MSK144) so I leave it on 24-7. After a few days I have to reboot the radio because the TX audio becomes distorted just from sitting there being on. This isn't a new problem, I've been putting up with it since I got the radio 3 years ago (even under v1 & v2 software) and but it has become annoying enough that I would now like to resolve it.
FTR the radio was sent to Flex about a year and a half ago so it has been through their tests with no faults found.
Has anyone else observed this ? Try leaving your radio on unused for a few days then attempt to use it on a digital mode while paying attention to the TX audio.
I know enough about software to be dangerous and this seems like a stack or other buffer overflow to me. Is Flex aware of the problem and are they working on a fix ?
