It sure would be GREAT if someone made a Video that showed all the new features and how to access them, etc. etc.

Hi Mark

That is awesome.  Nice job.

BTW, the USB Relay is cool if you want to do a soft power down.

Experimenting with the Hot Key editor... The action called "SWAP_A_D" seems to swap slice A for C instead of D.  Is this a mistake?  The other swap actions seem to be correct.  I'm using version 2.4.10.18.

Should probably read the manual instead of asking .. but it's an hour after midnight local h and I feel lazy. Haven't tried FRStack yet, but does it have support for my SPE 1K-Fa?

Today FRStack supports SPE 1.3, 1.5, 2.0.; SPE 1K uses an older protocol.

Mark, Thanks for the software.  I just tried it yesterday.  I am mainly interested in the all mode squelch feature so can monitor on ssb for long times without going deaf (2 mtr ssb :-) )  I noticed that if I set the all mode squelch and exit your program, the squelch remains active even if I reload ssdr.  I must re-open FRStack and then cancel the squelch even though the graphic shows it is already disconnnected.  Am I doing something wrong?  If I cancel the squelch feature then close your program it seems to work as expected.  It seems that once the audio is muted by the program it stays muted even after the program is closed and even after SSDR is closed and reopened.
