Any plans of adding voice memories on Smartsdr and Smartsdr iOS? Would be nice for contesting from pc or in pileups when using the app. Have some saved revordings, much like cw macros in cwx. Just an idea for future development.

I'm a new user to SDR radio and was disappointed to find out the feature was not available.  My previous radio was the FTdx-5000 with the voice memory feature.   I hope this happens soon.  It's a valuable contest tool as well as helpful chasing DX.  PLEASE!

Voice keyers are available as a stand-alone from K9DUR and others.
They are also incorporated into many different contest and logging programs.  N1MM+ for example.  

Just recently N3FJP incorporated the ability to use DAX audio channels in his ACLog and other contesting programs.  It works nicely.  (He also has incorporated TCP access for the 6000 series, allowing the program to record the frequency of whichever slice is "active"  This means that I can now have all 4 slices open on my 6500 and it will log which ever slice on I make a contact.)

I know this isn't part of SmartSDR but it works very well with SmartSDR, Rays other programs fill several niches for SmartSDR.

As far as contesting, you can use DAX and your contest logger to record messages and use them. instructions how to do this are posted in the N1MM setup documents on the FRS website, and can be adapted for use with other applications as well. All though I do agree this would be a useful feature, particularly for the iOS version and for general portable use, but  since the flex is not necessarily a "portable field" platform you can currently use your computer as a dvk.

I don't use N1MM logger so not an option for me.

Yes, we have a feature request for adding voice memories to SmartSDR.  At this time we have not scheduled this feature for a future release of SmartSDR.  As it has been pointed out, there are several alternatives for adding a voice keyer to SmartSDR using third-party applications.
