Global/TX profile exchange pool

I just had some work to adjust my 6300 to work the way I want it to work.
Same thing with TX audio. On the band, I met with another Flex-6700 user to setup my audio for example.

Wouldn't it be nice to have a source for profiles of different radio/mode setups to share with other Flex users? Maybe just for a starting point or for comparison?

This could easily be done via a Dropbox link, where the file is stored for download.

It could be hosted on a thread and the links could be maintained e.g. like this:

Anyone not sure what I'm on about, should grab a copy of "Flex 6300 TX Profile Rode NT1A" above and then open the file in notepad. Now tell me what it's supposed to do, and how you know that. "NT1A Optimum" Hmmmm Could beeee! Could be a trip on the UPSmobile back to Austin for "UnBricking" Go ahead load the profile now that you've all verified the file. And please Vote if you have any problems.

Still not sure?
1. Start with SSDR shutdown but your radio still on.
2. Double Click SSDR_Config_09-11-14_10.12.ssdr_cfg
3. Wait you verified it first right?
4. Go ahead and select your radio and click connect
5. Just select whatever options you usually select and click Import.
6. Hello is this UPS??? Can you stop at my place tomorrow, got a package for you? Drop it off ??? What??? Hello! Hello!
7. Or vote NO!
8. Huh? Ain't no way to vote NO! Huh?

You did double click the correct Icon didn't you? Not just the similar looking Icon. Well just move that one to the Recycle Bin since you don't need it.

I'm sorry, I didn't intend to suggest your file was harmful in any way. I was just trying to point out to any of the unsuspecting that this "could" have unintended results. Some lucky folks haven't been bitten by the "you probably shouldn't click things you find on the internet without understanding the risks" monster. Currently SmartSDR imports without any warning dialog or even an "Are you sure?" prompt. PowerSDR would sometimes blow chunks if you imported a corrupted database. Databases were stored on the PC where they could be deleted. Profiles are stored inside the radio where we don't have file access. So once its in there, do we know how to get it back out? Hopefully whatever embedded Linux OS the radio is running won't allow say, disabling the Ethernet device by any process or changeable configuration setting unless done back at Flexradio. Software usually already contains plenty of bugs, No need to find them new friends. There is a bit of difference between importing a file you found at *.flexradio.com and one you found at a third party "groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/FlexStuff" website.

I just deleted the file. Not that anybody has to test a "potentially risky" (pro)file.

Maybe your concerns are correct and it seems to be a better idea not to download files from not verified sources.

It is an interesting concept, if it could be made secure, and if files could be verified as not harmful.
Another possibility, at least for TX profiles, could be a text-based listing of various parameters Such as:

NM9P PR22 DX profile
Input: BAL     Level: 37
PROC: DX+
Low Cut: 215     High Cut: 2900
TX EQ:  -8, -6, -4, -2, +6, +8, +6, -10
DEXP:  47

Comments:  using line level input from a flat pre-amp into the BAL port.
For extra high boost, use TX EQ:  -8, -6, -4, -2, +7, +9, +7, -10

Setup>Phone tab settings:
Bias: OFF  +20 dB: OFF

=========================

NM9P PR22 Rag-Chew profile

Input: BAL     Level: 37
PROC: DX
Low Cut: 65     High Cut: 3000
TX EQ:  -8, -6, -4, -2, +6, +8, +6, -10
Dexp:  47

Comments:  using line level input from a flat preamp into the BAL port.
For a little less punch, use PROC: NOR (normal)

Setup>Phone tab settings:
Bias: OFF  +20 dB: OFF

=========================

NM9P Cheap Computer Headset DX profile
Input: MIC     Level: 45
PROC: DX+
Low Cut: 200     High Cut: 2900
TX EQ:  -10, -10, -10, -8, +1, +10, +10, -10
DEXP:  54
Comments:  using front panel input.

Setup>Phone tab settings:
Bias: ON  +20 dB: ON

These could be exchanged easily on a forum.  It wouldn't be "Plug-an-play," but only takes a minute to enter into your system.  And each setting is verified by the user.
