Here is a picture of the Greg I am asking about.



He posted many valuable comments and ideas during the early release of the Flex 6x000 series radio, but I have not seeing anything for the passed several years?

Looks like he has moved to a SunSDR from his post on QRZ.

Sergey,

I visited the eesdr.com website and the only thing I will say is "Thank you Flex Radio for your open forum. Where anyone is able to comment on any posting; regardless of their question or comments."

Ernest, i think we should be open for any opinion and message within Hamradio topics, however OffTop  should be isolated or moved under other subject, but i like Flex forum with our open behavior and my 6700

I think Greg has moved on from the SunSDR as well and is taking a break.

Greg lived near a electric fence that caused significant noise issues for him and the NB was not working at all in the panadapter.  I let Greg know that we would be working on this over time and he was quite patient, but I think this could be one of the reasons he moved on.  I feel confident the NB we have in v1.5 (due out in September) will fix the issues Greg was having.

I am looking forward to be on the air by then; now that I have received the HOA approval. 
i will be putting up a Hy-Gain 18-HT Hy-Tower and as many radials I can bury in the St Johns river.

I hope so, Steve...I have a nearby electric  fence that just started acting up about two weeks after I got my new LP antenna up.  (No, it isn't just the better antenna, it also shows up on my other two antennas!)  I plan to go talk to the folks, but have not had time when they were available......

Hi Ernest and everyone.  Still alive and kicking.  Did you have any questions?

BTW Steve is correct.....I just could not do with a radio that would not mitigate the electric fence popping on the display.

It would not remove the noise from the audio completely but it did help...nothing I tried would get it off the display.  The lower bands were terrible with the pulse humps covering ALL signals on the display.  I'm sure they've got it figured out for 1.5.

Thanks.  Not exactly an SDR.  :)  Had to drive up to Alberta Canada to get it.  This stop was at the Customs station in Eastport, ID.

Hi Sergey!  Sounds like you are doing great...that is good to hear.  No radio in the horse trailer yet.  I doubt I will install anything for awhile....that is sort of the XYL's domain if you know what I mean. :)  I don't see getting on the air much over the winter unless it is from K6KR's QTH to do a contest or two.
