A feature I would like now.

A feature I would like to see and should be implemented sooner rather than later is diversity reception. Specifically, I would like to see it in the format of phase noise cancellation. It should be automatic with ability to steer the phase manually as needed. Yes, I understand in the current scheme of SSDR it is separated into left and right channels. I think this would appeal to a lot of us with dual ADC’s simply because there is a lot of noise out there these days. Please do not make us wait to release it in 3.0

 

Thanks, Dan KM6CQ

It’s only software and software costs nothing to develop. ;>)

Software development resources are infinite since it’s just software. ;>)

Software engineers just love to work for free (especially in Austin, TX). ;>)

Great but complex software is easy to develop and maintain. ;>)

Oh, but my favorite feature is the most important. ;>)

Repeat after me: I love my job, I love my job. ;>)

Repeat after me: Gotta have a sense of humor. Gotta have a sense of humor. Gotta have a sense of humor.

I remember the days when kids could listen to 80m without the parents worrying about what they would hear. I was one of those kids. Oh, but I digress.

Happy New Year all...

@Dan. We really do appreciate customer feedback. Sometimes the days just get too long and life too short. We only have a thousand things in the backlog we would like to do and not enough time to do them all.

All is with a sense of humor after a long day. Should have quit reading the community a couple hours ago. Don’t take it personal.

As for VNA software - probably no time soon or maybe never. I can buy a good VNA cheaper than I can develop a full featured one. I personally would rather have a very portable VNA. There are several inexpensive ham products on the market that do a nice job that I use . Rigol makes a very cost effective scalar network analyzer built into their spectrum analyzer. We have a couple of those we use all the time.

Diversity enhancements - probably a lot sooner. Just probablilities - not commitments either way. By the way, we invented the phase diversity “radar” in PowerSDR around 10 years ago. How come it’s not in SmartSDR??? It’s only priorities relative to allocation finite resources and paying for those resources. It’s just software...

Sincerely,
Charlie Brown
