1.7.30 locks up

Just had my 6300 lock up. SSDR froze, and a steady beep from the speaker. I had to hold the power button in for about 5 seconds to get the radio to reboot. Running windows 10 radio is in CW mode. 1.7.30 has been running OK. I installed it about when it was released. I usually run the radio about 16 hours a day with no problems.

Don't expect a fix, just reporting a lock up for the benefit of everyone.

SOAP BOX TIME:

BTW when I did a search on the above title I got over 5000 hits. I am not going to read 5000 post.
Very hard to find answers to problems that may have already been addressed. Makes for a poor user experience. 

I am a little disappointed in the quality of the software. It seems like things that use to work now have problems and reported problems have not been addressed. It also seems like Flex is more interest in the networking of the 6000 so someone sitting in their backyard can operate their radio  with their iPhone, rather then worry about the actual quality and reliability of the radio. 

This is my opinion only. The service people have done a great job. Have always help when problems a raise.

Have had it happen myself. :( My hope is  now  we have MAESTRO ( I HAVE ONE ) FRS will move on and work on software issues. I purchased my MAESTRO so I would have KNOBS, I DON'T need all this networking stuff, but I DO need a radio that works as it should. :)

The fix for the defect behavior of the radio locking (defect #3597) up will be included in the next release of SmartSDR for Windows.
