SmartSDR v2.1.30 Now Available

FlexRadio Systems announces the immediate availability of SmartSDR v2.1.30 for the FLEX-6000 Signature Series SDRs.  SmartSDR v2.1.30 is a General Availability (GA) release containing the initial support for the FLEX-6400, FLEX-6400M, FLEX-6600 and FLEX-6600M, new features and fixes for SmartSDR for Windows, SmartSDR for Maestro, SmartSDR CAT and DAX.

SmartSDR 2.1.30 can be downloaded from the FlexRadio Systems web site. Please download and review the SmartSDR v2.1.30 Release Notes prior to installing SmartSDR v2.1.30 to ensure an optimal software installation experience.

A software license for the FLEX-6000 is required to run SmartSDR v2.1.30.  If your FLEX-6000 has been authorized to run a previous version of SmartSDRv2, re-authorization is not required.

All owners of the Limited Edition (LE) FLEX-6700 and FLEX-6500 SDRs or radios sold after May 19, 2017, have been pre-authorized for SmartSDR v2 and do not require the purchase of a SmartSDR v2 license.  To run SmartSDR v2 on all other radios requires the purchase of a software license for the radio.

Obtaining and validating a license for your FLEX-6000 software defined radio is a simple process.  Once the radio and client have network access to the Internet, just load any version of the SmartSDR v2 software on your PC or Maestro.  In the radio chooser, if a radio requires a license, a status message will indicate a license is required before connecting to the radio and updating the firmware.  A “Buy” button is also presented so that you can conveniently purchase a SmartSDRv2 license using our Online Store.  Please see details below regarding purchasing a SmartSDR software license for your radio.

The following highlights are SmartSDR specific features:
  • Panadapter Fill:  Panadapters can now optionally be shaded in.  This feature can be enabled in the Display menu, where the intensity of the fill can also be adjusted. 
  • Tune Guides:  Allows you to conveniently view the frequency at the location of the mouse as it moves over the Panadapter or Waterfall.  This feature can be enabled or disabled by right-clicking on the Panadapter or Waterfall and clicking “Tune Guides”. 
  • Single Click to Tune:  Allows you to tune the Active Slice to current mouse cursor location with a single click instead of a double-click.  This feature can be enabled or disabled in the RX tab of the Radio Setup menu. 
  • Meter redesign:  Meters in SmartSDR for Windows have been redesigned so that they are easier to read. 
  • TNF on Maestro: Controls to create, modify, and delete TNFs are now available on Maestro by touching and holding down on either the Panadapter or Waterfall 
  • Mouse Wheel Control: Most numeric controls in SmartSDR for Windows can now be adjusted with the mouse scroll wheel for ease of use.
