Curious if the FlexControl works when connected directly to a USB port on the 6000 series radio using the new Beta software?     I don't see anything mentioned in the USB interface Guide about it ??

I  don't think they have implemented FC control via the dedicated USB ports.

Still has to be connected to a computer. The only thing out of the USB ports now is CAT/BCD/BIT (addressable lines on a FTDI USB dongle) for band switching of external equipment such as amps, filters, antennas etc. There's also a control scheme for DEMI transverters.
