Maestro Problem: Noise burst on SSB transmission when using the SmartLink WAN remote. When I hit the MOX button, other hams tell me that they hear a 1/4 second burst of white noise, then the audio is excellent. I'm using version 2.0.19 software on the Maestro and my 6700 which is 1600 miles away. I use an Audio-Technica USB mic into a win 7 computer and I take the output from the computer's line out into Line 1 of the Maestro. If I run the same microphone on my win 7 computer but use VPN to the remote 6700 and use SmartSDR for Windows software (not using the Maestro) I do not get the noise burst. Also, when using the USB mic, no such noise burst is heard when recording to Audacity. This seems to me to be either a Maestro issue or a SmartLink issue. I have written this up on a ticket and had a QSO with Dudley where he heard the noise burst, but with the release of the new 6600 radios and the intended release of the new power amplifier, Flex staffers have been very busy and have not been able to make any progress on this issue. So, I'm using this forum to see if any others have experienced a similar problem, and if so is there a solution?
