Will Flex Radio be posting, as they have in the past, the release notes prior to the release of SmartSDR 1.7 (or whatever the new version is designated?)

Winkeyer in Maestro is hardware. By the way, K9CT, W0GJ and others ran thousands Qs on Palmyra K5P using the 6500 on CW.

This is using whatever is built into the flex. Straight Key or Paddle, it is horrible. It probably drops every 20th or so dit/dah  and catches you right in the middle of your callsign or something.  Especially for someone new to CW it drives me NUTS.  I didn't buy a Flex to have to use a Yaesu for CW.  Right now the radio is great for everything but CW. Unfortunate for me I guess. This issue has been around for a while from what I understand and it still has not been fixed. I want to keep my flex, but this is brutal.  I am a software developer, I also get the weighing of customer wants vs needs.  I also understand that CW probably isn't the mode the Flex was  made for primarily.  The fact is, most if not all other radios on the market don't have this kind of issue and buying an external keyer to interface with an SDR seems kind of odd.  I just hope they can fix it outside of a major release and sooner rather than later.

K5SDR, it's not that it can't work. It's just annoying. If you have been running CW for your whole lives maybe you can work around this. I use it daily for CW on SKCC etc., but just because I can hop on 1 leg, doesn't mean I don't need my other leg.  I really do like my Flex.  I just really want the basic features to work as intended.  

Also i have a 6300, not sure if thats the difference.

Admins, please close the thread.  The request has been answered and the thread got highjacked.  It no longer serves any useful purpose.
