The new PG has a predistorsion connector for each output signal. How the signal is going to be fed to a F 6700? I do not note any predistorsion connector on its back. Will Flex provide some hardware update, or predistorsion in F 6700 is not possible? Do we need V3 of SSDR  to implement the concept predistorsion in F 6700 and newest range of Flex made radios?

The predistortion output will be fed back to RX A or B on the 6700.

I thought I answered that. An RF cable will go from the PGXL pre-distortion output to the 6700 RX A or B input. The rest will be done in software.

I hope the software will allow for an external switching arrangement so I can still use the RX A and B for receive when not transmitting.

What is the impact from this particular distortion algorithm on digital signals, such as JT-65, MT-63, Codec 2, PACTOR, and MIL-STD 110A? Will DIGIU mode automatically route signals around any distortion?
