Just installed SSDR 1.10.8.39 finally since I took the day off, YAY!

NR and ANF are fantastic! 

Not a net guy but went to 40m phone to experiment.
Found a net where a couple of folks inevitably tuned up in the passband of the net op.
How fantastic to hear both NR and ANF work so well, WOW!
Been waiting for this to happen as I am sure many of you have as well.
A good ANF is so very important in contesting and general operating.

Thanks Flex team (you know who you are), seriously made my day!

BTW: The new USB support is just icing on the cake.
In the process of installing an opto coupled W9XT (Unified Microsystems) high driver board to my Six-Pak antenna controller via the USB parallel dongle I received from Flex, solder smoke shall commence shortly.

Congrats all!!!
Go Flex!!!

I thought the NR had changed for the better, not muffled, much clearer, but I couldnt see it in the release notes

I would love to upgrade to this new release ( currently running 1.6.x) but I just moved and the ONLY internet available at my new QTH is DSL at 1.5 mb/s.
Is this even possible to do?     73 All, Jim

Shouldn't be an issue. The installer is only about 50mb and even with DSL downloading will be quick.

The thing I don't know is whether you can go directly from 1.6.x to 1.10.8.

My internet is 1mb/s out here in the country with a 900mhz moto canopy radio connection.  Just stay off facebook if you want to ever finish the download, ha...
Non issue to me.

1.6  OMG so much has happened since then!
The Maestro update took about 10-15 minutes too
but then I have learned to be patient.  Beats dial-up...

James and Jon,
No problem going from one version to ANY other.
I know they say you don't necessarily have to uninstall
but the only time I did not I had an anomaly come up.
Since then a clean uninstall has worked perfectly EVERY time.

WOW!
This new version 1.10.8 is sure working well.  I been having troubles with Win 10 since this last update. However, this version 99.9% of the problems have been solved!
Thank you Flex for the update...

Yes, thanks for the update.

Getting the issue with TUNE in cw mode, and the TX DELAY in cw mode, fixed took care of the pwr out drive problems I was having when trying to use my amp.

It was only a problem driving the amp in cw. Any other mode was fine. Happy camper now.
