Did Flex 6x00 output Band Data into the I2C port like the 5000 radio ?  (K3TUF interface)

i try setup configuration whit multiple transverter

and try to avoid polling continuously  the CAT interface , also on band change it may good idea to "Push"  the ZZFA; command  for let a external passive interface grab it

As far as I know it has not yet been implemented on the 6000 serires

But DDUTIL will do the same for you

I used K3TUF interface for my old flex 1000 and it was fine.
it was fine that you was able to connect directly to flex and the powersdr was controlling it, no other sofware needed

I'd like to have a usb/com connection with 6500 directly from 6500 or by a box; it will permit hte use of device like station master which works also stand alone (non need to have its configuration sw USB device router always open)

I have a BeagleBone talking to the radio and controlling my transverters now.  I am using the I2C interface (on the BBB) to emulate what PowerSDR sent out the I2C port.   Just need to finish up all of the housekeeping before I publish the work.   But it does the trick and is fun to talk to the API.
