Hello, I have noticed after upgrading to SmartSDR 2.0

Doing remote testing I have noticed frequency variation, it has varied upward when down.

Did anyone notice this problem?

I've noticed a frequency stability problem.

Example at 40M I'm listening to someone on Mhz, 7,140, I have to make small corrections up or down.

In the display the frequency remains fixed but I hear variation in the voice.
As if the frequency varies, when I transmit the people also inform me that it is varying.

Prior to doing any upgrade I always export my profiles.  After I do any upgrade, I always do a factory reset of the Flex, then import profiles but making sure I do no include the Preferences.

If you haven't done this, I suggest you give it a try and see if the problem goes away.

I recommend that you frequency calibrate your radio.  After you do that, tune to a strong frequency reference signal (like WWV).  The carrier should be a straight line on the waterfall.  if it isn't, then open a HelpDesk ticket so we can investigate.

Change the magnitude of the signal strength scale on the right by using the up/down arrows located at the top of the scale.

I noticed the Quality Meter was showing 2 yellow bars, not that that has anything to do with Tom's reported problem. However, noticed that on my radio this morning as well.

Thomas, the scaling controls work fine.  Are you clicking on the small triangles?

Bill, if your comment has nothing to do with the post, adding it just adds to the confusion and degrades the signal to noise ratio of the replies.  We are trying to help Thomas, not muddy the situation.
