I just loaded smart SDR on my Win 7 PC. Just purchased a jused flex 1500. It says  "no drivers installed" Does smart SDR have the drivers as part of the install? Hardware manager sees the flex 1500 but no drivers were loaded..?

you need PowerSDR for the 1500, not SmartSDR which is only for 6xxx radios.

You are new in this SDR world. The old flex protocol 1000-1500-3000-5000, doesnt work's with new software called ssdr. Try with the appropriete KE9NS sw. That is cool better than flex power sdr.
