FreeDV plugin sideband issue

Can the plugin be fixed so that LSB is used on the appropriate bands? It is a shame that a big boost has been to FreeDV, but a faulty one. I only ask as a 40M beacon has been set up in VK, and though it can RX in USB, it can only TX in LSB AIUI.

Info is in the release notes.

Thank you. I do like the direct approach.

Flex has given FreeDV a welcome boost and the sideband issue does need fixing, and now IMHO.

Pointing to a readme that says it will be fixed at some point in the future is as useful as a chocolate teapot.

Hi Guy, direct approach yes, but not a demanding one as it will not help your case, Infact it may put you on the back burner for a while, a long while.

Wrong John, it does not work like that here. In fact, I have reliably been informed that the fix is coming quite soon.

Yes - a future plan to add the feature had been announced long before you knew not having it was even a problem!

This thread didn't change that.

Don't confuse correlation with causation, as petulance almost never gets technical results.

Sounds like you've been at the egg-nog Steve,LOL. I, and everybody else too I wager, could figure out that the lack of LSB would be an issue below 10MHz. Tried USB SSB on 80 or 40M lately, hi Hi? Best wishes for 2016.
