Does Flex currently use Version 2 (or higher?) of VITA 49?

Here is a informative video and PDF, from 2016, that provide interesting insights into the continued development of the Vita Radio Transport (VRT) protocol and Vita 49 version 2 abilities.

I'm interested in hearing reactions to the video and document from Rodger Hosking, of Pentek, Inc.

I thought this might be interesting for some in our Flex community.

Most of it is over my head but it looks like the future of communications is still evolving. CW Forever.

The reason I posted it is because our Flex ecosystem uses Vita 49 (.0?) and the video and PDF are now talking about .2.

It was also interesting to hear him talking about how important it was for .2 to incorporate the .0 API. It had echoes to me of the recent Flex upgrades to its API.

I’m imaging a long term project that allows Flex users anywhere to share receivers and transmitters among themselves globally. Want to work Europe the easy way? Use the Vita 49.2 protocols to find an available transmitter somewhere near the grid that you are looking for and give a call.
