Below is the best list that I can come up with of third-party software written specifically for use with SmartSDR. Are there any that I am missing?

If you add any please put it in the same format as the ones below: software name, URL and description.

It would be nice if there was a list like this somewhere on an official Flex link like http://www.flexradio.com/support/downloads/ so that others don’t have to go hunting for this information.

Thanks

SDR-Bridge

http://www.qrv.com/sdrbridge.html

We have a great skimming program, CW Skimmer. And we have a great logger, WriteLog. The problem is, they speak different languages, and can’t talk to each other. There is a limited connection through CAT. But it doesn’t touch what is possible. So when you click a spot on CW Skimmer, what happens? Nothing. But with SDR-Bridge, both the radio and WriteLog QSY to the frequency, WriteLog displays the callsign in the Entry panel, and receives the focus ready for the QSO.

 

Slice Master 6000

https://github.com/K1DBO/slice-master-6000

Slice Master 6000's primary focus is on dynamically configuring and launching CW Skimmer to work with the slice receivers in your radio. A CW Skimmer instance can be launched for any active slice so long as it's panadapter is assoicated with a DAX IQ channel.  Clicking on a signal in the CW Skimmer window will cause the associated slice receiver to change frequency. Likewise, changing the frequency of a slice receiver will cause the associated CW Skimmer to follow along.

 

FRStack 

http://www.mkcmsoftware.com/Flex/Index

FRStack displays a list of Active Slices, Most Recently Used (MRU) Frequencies, a list of Memories, a list of Favorite Memories, a list of Scan Banks, the Transmit Profiles, the MIC Profiles, the Global Profiles and the Radio Memory List.

 

All of the following are from K9DUR software.

MorseKeyer6k   This program provides an enhanced CW keyboard/memory keyer system for SmartSDR.

SDRMemory6k  This program provides an enhanced memory management system for SmartSDR. 

SDRMonitor       This program displays 2 small windows containing the power supply voltage and power amplifier temperature of a FLEX-6xxx series transceiver. 

SWRPlotter6k    This program allows you to plot SWR charts of your antenna system using a FLEX-6xxx series transceiver.

It also serves as a driver for the HRD suite of programs that doesn't require you to use the resource hog that is HRD's radio control.

1. Set drive levels for SPE 2K—FA by band and mode
2. Dis[play temperature of 6700
3. Display Voltage on 6700
4. Band /Frequency Data to Amp
5. Band / Frequency Data to SteppIR
6. Set and read direction of Rotor include 90 degree offset for 80M dipole on MonstIR
7. Full control (ON/OFF/Pwer Level, Temp) of SPE 2K-FA
8. Full control of Genovation Macro 24 button Keypad
9. Band and Frequency Data to HRD Logger with using HRD
10. Control of Flexcontrol Knob
11. Read my LP100A and Wavenode wattmeter

bunch of other things I don’t recall at the moment
