Been looking at that IMD on the Flex again.(Yes it does not get better by it's self)

Can it be improved  YES . And you  promised that  Clean  signal  "Clear signal" adaptation will be implemented.

I can understand that 1.4 remote thing and to those  guys waiting for remote operation  I guess its pretty soon . I can understand that 1.5 promise 

Creating state of the mind noise abatement that works . A great thing for us all .

Still affecting us all  is  cleaning up the transmitter  .

Since now we have that fantastic Pan display we can see the offending signals with opposite side bands (CRUD) 

Distorted audio , interfering with adjacent stations . For some , it's the inability to add or subtract the band width and just getting too close (Cant fix stupid) 
For others its the improper setting of their radios (ALL knobs to the right!!)  that maximize the IMD product that their respective radio produces. 

But for Some State of the art radio guys they have Pure signal. Which does clean up the signal .

Wait , we must ,But please  How about a little sooner ???

Given that the Flex is hardware ready in place ???
Given that you know how to do it ???

Since the necessity to  re write the code to accomplish " remote "  I must think That the Flex   group thought past that effort  to include 1.5 noise campaign
or  Pure signal?? I certainly hope you did as this IMD reduction can and will  affect everyone on the bands . 

As more and more HAMS use "Pure signal"  IMD reduction  The urgency is still out there for Flex to be the best . 

Putting all your RF energy into the band pass is a good thing . Sounding Fantastic can be for us all

So how about sooner than later

Our position on this particular feature and capability has not changed since our last public statement on it.  This is a feature we will seriously consider for a future version of SmartSDR.  
It is company policy not to discuss in detail or speculate on possible future software features and products other that what we have publicly stated in the development roadmap before their release is imminent.  This is to ensure that customer expectations are properly met, since factors not within our control can affect release dates and feature availability.

At this time our focus is entirely on SmartSDR v1.4.  After that is released, our focus will be on v1.5.  We are not providing any forward looking statements on possible features to be included in future releases other than what we have previously stated for v1.5 and v2.0.
