CAT connect to wrong radio

At Field Day this year we had two 6700's. Many operators who have never operated an SDR got the chance to operate a 6700 or at least see it projected onto walls across the Denton County EOC. A fun time was had by all.

One issue we had periodically is that the SmartCAT that we each had connected to our local logging programs would connect somehow get connected to each others radios. This made for some confusing logs until I was able to straighten out the situation. I had to do this twice over the event.

It would be good if SmartCAT was smart enough to default to connecting to the radio that it last connected add an extra step to connect to radios that it has never connected to in the past.

Robert - there is a feature of FlexLib where you can add a filter file to the PC and all of hte FlexLib enabled applications like SmartSDR, CAT and DAX will reject the discovery packets of radios not listed in the file.

The file is a simple text file called "filter.txt" and it is located in %APPDATA%\FlexRadio Systems folder.

All you do is place the serial number of the radio you want to dedicated to that PC in the file and all other radio connections will be prohibited.
