SmartSDR functionality vs PowerSDR

  • Question
  • Updated 3 years ago

Early on we were led to believe that the 6000 series SmartSDR software would be brought to a functionality level at least equal in features to the PowerSDR platform BEFORE an upgrade to 2.0 would be necessary. 

I fully understand that the remote (outside of LAN) access would not be considered "equal", and therefore a 2.0 type feature, but what about some of the others that are missing and don't seem to be mentioned for V1.4 or V1.5 yet.........  Will we be forced into V2.0, or beyond, just to get back some of the stuff we gave up to upgrade to the newer platform? 

Items such as:

Panascope (audio scope)

Full audio recorder

Ability to bring in audio from a USB device for TX (Focusrite, etc)

any others you can think of?

I understand folks are patiently waiting for remote access, but what about those of us who bought into the new platform expecting to EVENTUALLY receive comparable functionality to the previous platform?

When can we expect to see the Panascope function, as well as full audio recorder, and selecting a usb device for tx audio?

Will any of these make V1.4 or 1.5?

All I can tell you is that it will happen in the future, if it does happen. I figured that out using the process of elimination, ie. it didn't happen in the past, it's not happening now, so my guess is it's going to happen in the future (time being sorta linear and all).  When exactly? My psychic powers took a major hit when the Flux Capacitor burned out, so I can't predict the future like I could in the past. I think all 3 of those features would be great in SmartSDR Did you need to hold someones hand while you wait or do you always sound so anxious?

Full Audio Recorder --  See the comments on this idea.

V1.4 provides audio to the remote PC which could make it easier to store the recorded files also.  

So it could be coming or at least the groundwork is there.....You might want to add your vote to the idea if this is important to you.
