For those that have upgraded to SmartSDR v2.0, has the DStar operability been fixed? There was a waveform bug that kept DStar from working in SmartSDR v1.xxx. I was wondering if it now works again in version 2.0?

Unfortunately, that defect did not get addressed with 2.0.17. I see it scheduled for the 2.1 release.

Tim,

Thank you so much for letting us know that it is at least scheduled and for the 2.1 release.  That means a lot.

I find it frustrating that this is so low on  the list .  This feature was one of the deciding  factors in my decision to by a Flex 6000 radio.  Since the feature requires the consumer to purchase additional hardware in the form of a dongle, I would have expected the fix to be prioritized and fixed WAY before V2 was released.

May I ask in what way DStar is broken?

My 6700 seems to be decoding the local DStar reflector transmissions - is the problem with transmitting DStar signals?

(I hope that I am not imagining those reflector transmissions describing the weather and dinner specials of the day in Missoula...)
