It's all right, we are finally at version 2.0 after an exhausting wait, I'm a user from version 1.0 but now i expect you to be serious and give us all the following:

  • Voice Keyer directly from SmartSDR / Maestro
  • An internal engine for basic digital (psk31-63 - rtty - cw)
  • Cluster connection with call sign spot on waterfall
  • Multiple instances to have both active on pc and Maestro smartSDR
  • Ability to record and export to mp3 file cloud


I believe we are so cheerful, we deserve it, we continue to give you confidence and it is right for you FRS to understand our needs! I expect your answer

Right. And don't forget SQUELCH, which was in the early and later versions of PSDR, but not in SSDR. Why?

Gerald I think said in a post he don't use squelch and I took what he said as there will be no squelch ..... I was told SSDR would be way above and beyond PSDR way before you had to pay, I saw another post said he was told the same thing.

What do you think this is, the KE9NS version of Power SDR???  You'll need to stick with your Flex-5000 to get all those features in one program.  <grin>

I think this user group could use a little squelch to block out all the static

Lol Eric.... You know what? I think there is a bit of underlying truth to your joking remark. :)

Sorry Eric, I cant hear you. I have 4 slices RXs going in the shack right now, 1 on CW, 1 on FM and 2 on HF SSB, I can't hear a bloody thing, even my brain signals are harder to copy.

see....if you had SQUELCH feature, you could cut down on all that extraneous cacophony.

I would add dxcluster spots on panadapter and additional sub RX in the slice passaband filter limits.
These could be the only reasons to still keeping my 6300, the fastest outdated rig in the whole ham history (please keep my words like a funny English humor)
Still evaluating to upgrade to v2.0 or waiting until 6400/M will be released.

Regards
Enzo


Edit: I am wondering if I can use the 6300's internal tuner in the 6400 or if I have to buy that 6400 dedicated one.

Frank, you have been in this community long enough to know that asking for a commitment for future products and features, let alone demanding one is not going to result in an answer.  It is company policy not to discuss or speculate on future features until they are officially announced. 

You are welcome to make recommendations and suggestions.  We welcome those, but strong handed tactics, like making demands for an answer in a bold font (the equivalent of yelling in print) will not make a difference in setting preferences and priorities.  I can empathize with your desire to have more and better features and they will be forthcoming, but please utilize a little gentler etiquette.  
Thank you.

I believe this was an auto correct spelling issue.

I totally agree... Therefore my point about Frank.
Check this out.



You can easily see how the sentence could be constructed wrongly if you try to go from Italian to English.

I see this happen often when going back and forth between languages.

I am sure Bob meant "gentle" as I am sure Frank meant to be more polite. I was making a point. I could have been offended about Bob's mixing of religion in a post or I could see that it was a spelling mistake.

Just like when on SSB or a mobile phone, its human for people to start shouting when they think the other party is not hearing them.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TNPzgPhHeWQ

I can see how in Italian "I look forward to your answer" could be wrongly translated as "I expect your answer"
Maybe before forum shaming someone's approach in here we could ascertain their post intentions. If indeed Frank meant to be "demanding" then the reprimand would be OK but not before. Just my opinion.

Mine did not want to be rude, it is not in my character to be, it is just a way to emphasize my bold I am enthusiastic and express the desire of so many to have something more than other brands, Tim does not misunderstand my thoughts, Do I understand your set of things well, but do not I just hold my observations? Or can I wait to wait for 3.0 4.0 to have what radio from the noni highs have been doing since 2005? From being realistic, you are doing a good job but give us a toy that makes us enjoy 100% good work and good relax

And when you use the word "we" don't include me, because I already have excellent software produced by others that I use now.  Duplication of effort is a waste of time AFIAC, and there are some pretty big shoes to fill.

There are things that I would like, and none of those are on that list. I'd like them, but I surely won't demand them.

Thanks to WO2X I'm back up, fully reconfigured, running 2.0. Stable would be an understatement. It just seems that no matter how hard FRS tries, there will always be some squeaky gears in the mechanism. Maybe these people can do better? To Tim and the team, Thank You!

We will not commit to anything unless it has been previously announced by management or until the feature is in an alpha release and has been tested.

Frank, I work for a major consumer electronics company, as a Sr Engineer for products that receive frequent firmware updates. Many people see firmware as magic bullets that you can easily change any aspect of the way the device operates. These updates, however minor, require a total reevaluation of the product. These reevaluations are costly. Too often, one minor tweak results in another unforeseen problem. When updates are made, you choose your battles very carefully, usually by considering the ROI (Return On Investment). Engineering man hours are not cheap, so  you choose enhancements that will give you the biggest return. In my case, suggestions for updates are seldom considered when it's only coming from one customer (unless they discovered a bug). You look at the global feedback and use that as a possible starting point. FRS likely has many things in the oven, though they may not all be what we each want. I'm enjoying 2.0 and not worrying about what's next right now.

Thanks for your answer, but I think having the features that Icom's homes have given to their utilities for decades should have already been implemented by FRS I do not understand why this has not yet been done, a very useful DVK I do not think is the ' The world's only radiosmator that feels the need! It would be great to make a flying connection in rtty without having to turn on the PC
