What is the difference in shutting down the 6000, radio first then closing the software or vice versa?
What are the implications of either method?
What is the proper method?

The best sequence is to shut the SW down first, in fact start with any applications such as HRD or DDUtil if you use them then the SmartSDR SW.  Shutting down the radio first will get you a message from SmartSDR that the connection was lost.  I do not believe that there is any harm to either radio or SmartSDR  when the radio is shutdown first.  Since the release of 1.4 the radios states seem to be saved nicely now.
