V2.0 SmartLink works Great !
Found V2.0 to be much more enjoyable experience (faster, smoother operation) for Remote than the VPN Rasberry-Pi approach on my Slug Slow DSL line here with top upload speeds of 0.350Mbytse/sec. For now I do not have to pay those outrageous FIOS & Cable Internet providers for a slug slow DSL Copper Land Line Rural $14.95/month Internet
Can see the Waterfall and have One Pan-Adapter open at virtually any of the Coffee Shops in my Area, Peet's Coffee House, Starbucks, Coffee Bean, Denny's and Hotel Wi-Fi's as long as I use the Low BW Connection and keep the frames & rates down, audio is excellent.
My BufferBloat Grade is an amazing F, so sometimes I get a few pops in the audio, but on Slow Slug Frontier/Verizon DSL, it is amazing ! With VPN approach had V1.10.xx crash most of the times unless I got lucky ! The new V2.0 SSDR with SmartLink will pay for itself in a short time in a matter of months at this rate, well worth the $200 for the upgrade from FlexRadio Systems !!
Also using an Acer Switch 10 NetBook computer with Windows 10 I found at Costco, works great and for the first time !
set up the detachable windows in V2.0.17 SSDR to drive a Big 65 inch screen TV thru the Netbook's HDMI port, amazing to see it Panadapter and Waterfall with no Windows Clutteron the screen !
I think if I got a better BufferBloat grade some of that would go away, but I say there was a world of improvement between V1.10.xx and V2.0 with the ability to Select Low BW Connection. Think the Engineer's at Flex got it right !
Ben running V2.0 on 24Hrs/7days a week for almost 2 weeks, no freeze-up's, etc.
Had a few Hams test my system and they were amazed by working DX on 20meters thru my HexBeam, my remote Flex6700 and these local ham's were in HOA restricted condo's and now they are excited about the way things played so well.
Flex V2.0 SmartLink is amazing compared to the Elecraft ( No Remote Scope ) or limited Scope on the Kenwood. Gave up on the Icom IC-7300 with the RS-BA1, to complicated to get up and running.
Need I same more, FlexRadio got it right this time !
