Your comment about foul QSOs is well taken. There are a number of extremely salty blokes on EVENING 75 Metres here in Colorado. The morning crew is very polite, but the jerks come out in the evening. Probably fueled by alcohol. Trouble is, they seem to ID by NAME rather than CALLSIGN.
If we could record LONGER recordings, we might be able to catch a callsign somewhere along.
This is an obvious feature that has many potential uses. If SSDR is capable of recording receive audio then why NOT allow the user to capture and retain it for whatever purpose is at hand? In the interim at least tell us where the file is written so that we can rename it so that it can be saved.

Please correct me if my assumptions are wrong.
Audio and Video with BB Flashback, it will be nice when we can direct our transmitted audio in with it. I like to record then post it to youtube and then send a link to the recipient. The video is nice so they can see the cleanliness of their signal.
Here is the link to a related idea you may be interested in. It suggests adding a "black box" recording mode. A nice thing about this mode is that you would always have the last X minutes already recorded. Sometimes you wish you had history instead of trying to start the recording in a rush and missing what just happened. (like when you finally break that big DX pileup)
When the recording feature was initially added, there wasn't a provision to send the audio to the PC. So the recording was stored on the radio and storage space is limited. But now since compressed audio is being sent to the PC, it could be saved on the PC in a file of what ever size you would like. You could dedicate a small or large amount of storage (i.e. 2 minutes, 60 minutes, etc). Since the audio recording would work like a "black box" the file wouldn't grow beyond what you specified.
And since the .mp3 file is on the PC, you don't have to do anything special to make a copy of it, or edit it, etc.
Here is a link to the idea -- if interested you can add your comments and a vote. It has 17 votes currently and is in the top 20.

The recorded file could be either WAV or MP3 for further processing.
I am using Audacity to record audio and CW Skimmer to record I/Q, but this is way too slow if you want to do a fast recording.
