On last night's "Ham Talk Live" podcast, the Orlando Hamcation chair said that Flex would announce a new "digital protocol thing" and conduct demonstrations at the Hamcation.

Martin, that is just an approved package of hardware. The phrase "digital protocol" to me seems something major and quite specific. At the risk of provoking more version 3 discussions, perhaps the pending announcement has something to do with the release of a new major SmartSDR release version 3, I am speculating. And if that major release were to include muti-cliient it may have taken a change in the digital protocol in order to facilitate. Again, I'm a speculating.
Make sense to me that FRS would do a major announcement at Hamcation 2019 and releasing version 3 or a version 2 update certainly is due and would be an appropriate venue for the announcement. Since it's just 2 weeks away, we won't have long to find out.
