updated firmware 6500, which has never had problems to date. When I click icon to open SDR  I get invitation to register with Smart Link. Pressing "register" button does nothing.

Are you using Internet Explorer 10 on your computer? If so, please upgrade to IE11 and you will be able to register. Most web sites no longer accept IE10 due to security issues.

Hi John:  thanks for the tip.  i do not use Internet Explorer on this new PC that I just bought for "shack use only".  My problem disappeared when I finally did something correctly (?) and registration suddenly took place and suddenly my screen lit up.  The 6500 is back on the air and just worked somebody on 40 CW, all seems dandy now except propagation of course lousy.
