James... THAT looks terrific!  You have your very own SSDR running there, it seems.  You should be VERY proud about how far you've come with this project in such a short time.

Maybe we can get more of a close-up?  Out of curiosity, I'd like to see what types of controls you've implemented.

Wow.. very cool!  Bravo!

Thank you Peter! I posted another video before this one with the program running in Win7 on my desktop machine. It's the thread about resolving the issues I had with bad flickering. It worked Ok in Vista got worse in Win7 and was unwatchable in Win10. I fixed that and now the panadapter is smooth in all 3 OS's.
It's a bit longer video and easier to see. All functions on the form work. I ran the Nextbook test all day Sunday with no issues. And I used my CMD Micro controller with William's program and it worked real well.

Thanks Tim. I just wish I had more time to work on it. I drive an 18 wheeler from Texas to Arizona and back during the week. So, only get to work on my test app on weekends,

When they get the WAN functionality sorted you'll be able to work on it whilst parked up!

That's true! :-)
But, my boss already thinks I'm slow. So, if I start playing radio and programming on the road, I might get into trouble!
