How do I create a com port with out smartsdr running?
To be clear, you can create COM ports using SmartSDR CAT without needing to have SmartSDR running on your computer. You can also use the COM ports with third party applications such as N1MM logger, without running SmartSDR. SmartSDR CAT has to be running. Simply have your 6400M turned on with at least one active slice on the panadapter. I do it all the time with N1MM + and DX Labs commander and DX Keeper apps.
