I have been trying to integrate a new transverter this weekend and have noticed that SmartSDR v1.9.13 on Windows 10 does not handle selecting 144MHz at all on my Flex 6700.The software either hangs and fails to select the 144MHz band when asked directly, or the application crashes when I select it as a transverter with 144MHz IF.

Downgrading to SmartSDR v1.9.9 seems to work normally so looks to be a feature added in the latest release.

Can anyone else confirm the observation?

I tried Nick and I cannot recreate your error.
I can create a 70cm transverter with 144 MHz IF without a problem.

After the upgrade to 1.9.13 I had some odd behaviors that shorted out with a Factory Reset.

  • Hold the OK button in the front panel while you turn ON the 6700-6500
  • A count down from 5 starts
  • Hold the OK button until it reaches 0
  • That will start the Reset process
