This has been requested for as long as the waveform has been available. Not just here, but on the FDV group!

Pretty useless unless you are talking with another flex 6K user.

Hopefully will see the "likes" on this idea and bump it up on the priority list.

Mark,

To get a world-wide convention to work properly, Flex should not have to look at the number of likes at all. That the release works against such a convention should be enough reason.

Releasing the waveform in a broken state and leaving it like is just madness. One Elmer here has given me the usual software-changing reason that to change the waveform with break something else. The waveform has had one coding update since release with no operator-visible changes apparent.

I also would like LSB on FREEDV. My understanding is the code is open source free for someone to see how it's done for thumbDV. Shouldn't be tremendously difficult to modify the code to have two modes, FDV-USB and FDV-LSB instead of what it is now FDV. I attempted in the past getting Visual Studio loaded and just couldn't get the libraries setup to the point to start playing with code. Got busy at work and the trial for VS ended. If I had an someone that can assist me getting walk me through getting started, be nice to play around to reverse engineer existing FDV code and go from there.
