One of the videos on line suggests that the 6300's built-in tuner has no memories, and takes 10 seconds to retune (manually) each time we QSY... true, or has that been changed in a SmartSDR update?

Hi Bob,

As far as I can tell the new SmartSDR update still does not have the ATU memories. I am hoping that is on the roadmap soon for contesters who like to change bands often.

Correct.  The tuner has the capability for memories, but the software hasn't been written yet.  When they get to it, it has the possibility of being a very "smart" ATU indeed.  I can hardly wait.

Super !   It was interesting to hear the Flex team talk at the banquet in Dayton and say that they've become a software creator, not just a hardware creator anymore... looking forward to great things ahead for my 6300....

£300 for a tuner without memories? Then it's cheaper and better to buy a remote tuner, of which I will now do instead.

My 6700 tuner us so fast that it does not need memories


That said, memories will likely be there soon
