Hi all
Currently there is a Flex-3000 advertised on eBay Germany and the seller states that his Flex 3000 operates at 192khz panadapter bandwidth using Ke9NS version of PowerSDR.

I did not think this was possible with the 3k!!.

I have tried this myself with Ke9NS but all it seems to do in my case (if you set the flexdriver to 192khz and Powersdr setup to 192khz)  is to render the flexdriver unusable and I have to reinstall the flexdriver and powersdr.
Has anybody else heard of the 3000 running at 192khz? And if so is there a procedure to achieve this?

Pretty sure the Flex3000 is 96K max

And yet that is still pretty amazing compared to any legacy radio.

Quick update. The seller in Germany has provided a picture showing his Flex 3000 running at 192khz bandwidth with ke0ns PowerSDR. How has he managed to do this?

Whenever I try it it just corrupts the flexdriver and it has to be re-installed

Resolved - Ok so this does work and PSDR V2.8 allows the Flex 3k to work at 192khz  sample rate.

The limiting factor will be the Firewire card and/or it's driver.
In my case i simply had to install the legacy 1394 Firewire driver.

It's pretty cool having 192khz bandwidth on the Panadapter!

Darrin KE9NS PowerSDR 2.8 is awesome!
