SmartSDR v2
Radio Flex 6300
AMP SPE 1.3k USB connected
OS Windows 10

While TX'ing in CW with or without amp I have had two weird things occur

1. Radio Locks up in TX up with CW Tone (Hard Reboot long press of power Fixed issue)
2. Radio looses RX completely in both local and with Remote (Soft Reboot Fixed issue)

Both have reoccurred multiple times.  I have never seen this since I do not do CW.  had a friend over and he was banging away on the paddle when occurred.

found the problem, user is switching modes while in tx through the remotehams software.  not sure why you would want to do it but it causes all kinds of problems.
was able to reproduce it as well

NOTE: if you change modes in smartsdr while in tx it works just fine, "but not sure why you would want to change modes while in tx.

Not a flex issue for sure

sorry for wasting our hobby time
