SSDR crashes if I click on a DX spot in DX4WIN if the spot is on a different band than the band I'm presently listening to. SSDR worked great if the DX spot I click on is in the same band and it even goes to CW now (changes modes)!! Thanks guys!! I'm running Flex 6500, V0.13.10, DX4WIN & DDUtil V3, W7Pro.

This is a known issue with the FLEX-6500. The frequency jump results in an out of resource.

Can you provide a screen shot of the error detail so I can confirm my guess.

Tim, I tried the experiment as before but got different results this time. See #! slide. This time RXA went to 20m but RXB stayed on 40m and I couldn't get RXA and 20m to show on the screen (double clicked on RXA). I brought up another slice on 20m but as you can see no joy....

I then closed 20m slice and RXB and changed band to 20m and RXA showed up at the correct freq.... This time SSDR did not crash and was very solid all evening, no restarts.

It has happened to me a couple of times, but not always. It seems to happen on the largest band excursions. Other times, it takes me to the right band but I have to click the VFO A=> or <=VFO A link on the side of the screen to get to the frequency. It wo9uld be more convenient if it put the spot in center display, or at least somewhere on the pan display.

Those are not VFOs, they are Slices. The FLEX-6000 does not have any VFOs :-)

Hi Ken, I would like to see Flex make the interface between the Logging programs and the 6000 work as seamlessly as they do with the 5000A. Flex set the bar high with how well the PSDR worked with the 5000A and logging programs...

But, because SSDR and the 6000 are such a different architecture will mean Flex and the logging program providers will have to do a little filing to fit.....

Can't wait though....
