version 1.4 software

Am I right in thinking that if and when the latest update V 1.4 comes out we are expected to pay for it ?? if so does anyone know just how much it will cost (the GBP is strong against the $ just now)

Also would the update apply to the radio or the PC that runs it (if that makes sense) I ask because if one day I decide to sell my 6300 I can advertise it as being installed with the latest updates/firmware

cheers Keith

To your second question about what is updated - PC or the radio - it's both.  Expect new DSP / ARM / and FPGA code as well as PC updates to the S-SDR and drivers / Cat / DAX.  I am not an Alpha tester but can surmise this from the FRS posts.  FRS has actually been very forthcoming with information.

Great stuff thanks for your reply, to be honest I am not using my 6300 to it's full capacity.

it is connected to the PC and to the following programmes HRD + DM780 MMTTY WSPR and of course SSB. there's loads of other stuff I could do to get more out of it but radio time is very scarce at the moment due to work commitments.

still I am very much looking forward to the next update when it comes

Keith, you have a very fine radio there in the 6300, it really performs.
Have fun...
