Heck, I would have paid $199 for V3 just for the feature allowing me to plaster my name and call sign in the top-center of the screen.

You can already do this now .. on the bottom screen edge. I rarely forget my name and callsign but admittedly, this has come in handy at times!

Neil, SSDR displays the nickname you choose in the Radio Setup dialogue box at the bottom of the screen with the version identifier. Not exactly what you requested however.

You may want to get Bandinfo:
https://community.flexradio.com/flexradio/topics/bandinfo-ver-1-09-available

It overlays what you choose depending band via a text table you edit, of course your call sign can be added, changing size, color of text and background.

V3 (at least for the 6600M) allows any text you want at top middle screen directly under "menu."  I have "Neil--N3DF".  I was just wondering if there were alternate methods of putting my name and call on the main screen.  I suppose this is a really minor point, but I like having my name and call on the FLEX main screen.
