FlexRadio Systems announces the immediate availability of SmartSDR v1.10.8 BETA for the FLEX-6000 Signature Series SDRs.  SmartSDR v1.10.8 is a BETA release containing new features and fixes for previously identified software defects.

What is a Public Beta Release?

Public beta releases serve the dual purpose of demonstrating a product offering to potential customers, and testing among an extremely wide user base likely to bring to light obscure issues that a much smaller testing team might not find.

This is a REAL beta – this means that you will be using a version of SmartSDR that is not entirely ready for general availability use at this time but was deemed stable enough for us to release so that we may gather additional data points in regards to operability.  So if you are a regular user of SmartSDR that is not concerned by this possibility here’s a great opportunity to help us make the next GA release even better.

Since SmartSDR v1.10.8 is a beta release, support is handled a little differently than with a general release. The Station Integration USB cables feature is what designates SmartSDR v1.10.8 as a BETA release.  All communications regarding the USB cable connect feature, such as questions, comments, request for support or reporting a bug should be sent via e-mail to:

As with previous general releases, support for all other features in SmartSDR v1.10.8 is provided by submitting a support ticket through the HelpDesk (

Because this is a public Beta, for USB cable related issues, we encourage you to contact us at the email address above rather than posting questions on the FlexRadio Community, social media, or submitting a HelpDesk support ticket.
For this release, in particular, it is highly recommended that you Review the SmartSDR v1.10.8 Release Notes before upgrading as are several “best practices” recommendations that will facilitate a smooth transition to the new version of SmartSDR for Windows.

Thank you for your participation.  The developers look forward to receiving your feedback on this beta release of SmartSDR.
