Praise upon praise ( aka praise to the second power)

I posted on another forum and it reminded me how fortunate we are to have such a dedicated team at FRS and how their service is more than likely second to none in this hobby. The post was wrt a late comer to the sdr party which reminded me of all the positives that  come along with owning a Flex. The FRS team works diligently to be on top of the game and as a user it is easy to get spoiled. W/o doubt, Flex is at the tip of the spear wrt SDR and they are 100% made in America. They did not outsource overseas for higher profits and yet they lead the pack.

I used to love my Winkey usb hardware. It was rock solid and never failed. W/ the incorporation of Winkey usb into SSDR, I will now be selling my Winkey usb hardware. I have never utilized a voice keyer in any logging software. My win10 has a voice recorder, but the stupid thing only records in .m4a format. N1MM+ requires .wav. Uber cool that I could record a file onto my computer with DAX mic stream and windows voice recorder. I just had to locate a .m4a to .wav converter on the interwebby   http://audio.online-convert.com/convert-to-wav  Now N1MM+ is happy as the hog in slop and for the first time ever I am able to enjoy it's voice keyer capabilities. I also recently upgraded to win10 and did a subsequent update w/o any harm to dax. Rock solid and that did not come w/o tons of effort by FRS.

Bottom line, thank you for the tireless dedication and a product that leads the industry/hobby. I hope nothing but continual domination w/in the market and many additional future government contracts that help to keep Flex @ #1 and the bad guys on the run. Also please guard your secrets well, because I believe many in the modern global marketplace do not believe in paying for R&D.

+1 also but keep in mind that without those so called "bad guys" Flex would not likely be as good as it is today. The competition in a capitalist based economy makes better mouse traps. The other guys aren't "bad" per sé, Flex is just better. :)

Well that was in reference to the government contracts and their use of FRS products. I am assuming that they use them to counter ne'er-do-wells.

@ Mike. Hopefully the FRS products used in societies service do serve us well. Certain tasks they mention doing back in the day took several semi-trailer sized units with several staff each to accomplish what our 6700s can now do. Awesome!

@Danny. Competition improves the breed, but remember that thievery in the form of counterfeiting and technology piracy damage, and in the end stifle innovation by stealing the results of investment.

@FRS. Your team deserves the praise. Well done and keep it coming!

Steve,

Re your piracy comments.

One finds that rubbish programs or films cannot be found on Pirate Bay etc. To paraphrase, piracy is the ultimate form of flattery. Also, piracy of a program tends to take off once it becomes more expensive than the perceived fair price.

Also, it has been proven time and time again that those who download music and films tend to *buy* more than those that do not.

It is just not as simple as as "piracy is bad".

Where did piracy come in?
