As a take-away from the huge thread about the cool V1.6 digital video a couple items seem to be self-suggested:
- A SmartSDR Basic Mode - if selected SmartSDR would hide away any option not needed for basic radio operations.
- A SmartSDR Auto-Digital Mode - which would add to the basic mode a single digital mode instance preconfigured as much as possible to be a clink-n-go option. A Wizard style configuration auto-checklist would guide a user to configure anything that cannot be automatic.
- And then a person could select the full feature mode where everything SmartSDR can do is exposed.
A second take-away is the possible need to "lock" some of the settings. Here I am envisioning a Flex-6000 in a club situation. What we do with our present radios is tell any station operators that they have to ask permision to change any configurations, taht those changes have to be logged & initialed, and that the changes need to be set back to how they found it unless otherwise approved.
I'm imagining a seriously messed up SmartSDR configuation if every operator has access to ever configuration parameter.
