Anyone else having trouble retaining the Calibration Offset Value on a Flex 6500 (No GPS) with SSDR 1.6.17.  My offset value is -1189 @ 15 MHz.  Reverts to 0 value after I do a radio shutdown and restart.  I did a Factory Reset.  Value still not retained.  The calibration routine works ok, the value is not saved.  Value was retained with SSDR 1.5.1.  What am I missing?

Your radio believes it has a GPSDO installed which is why the offset is reverting back to 0. 

To fix, do the following:

Start SmartSDR and connect to your radio.
From the Settings menu, select the Radio Setup->GPS tab.
Click on the Uninstall button.
Close SmartSDR
Power cycle the radio
Start SmartSDR and connect to your radio.
From the Settings menu, select the Radio Setup->Receive tab
Run a frequency calibration
Close SmartSDR
Power cycle the radio
Start SmartSDR and connect to your radio.
From the Settings menu, select the Radio Setup->Receive tab

You should see the previous offset value now.
