I would like to know if there are plans to grant remote access for a selected users list to access the Flex-6000 series in V2.0, with rights such as Transmit, mode of operation SSB, CW, DIGI.. etc, bands of operation also ability to chose Antenna 1 or 2.

I would like also to know how many Flexers would like to see this feature implemented.

access rights is a good idea .... you could allow a neighbor to get hooked but stay legal!

I think this is an interesting thought but for me, I'd prefer to see more FlexRadio "only" capabilities before making the radio have roles, permissions and access rights.

I'd like to see people's thoughts about what radio capabilities they would like to see IN the RADIO before we turn the radio into a multi-user server.

I see myself just aching to press the PTT at that precious moment I am alone with
that incredibly difficult to reach DX station, when suddenly the band changes and
my fried Peter uses my TRX ... not the end of the friendship, of course, but a serious thinking about giving him the access rights to use my TRX will be in
order. Maybe we'll have a timetable on dropbox....or a "kill switch" for the moment
I want my TRX for myself only, yes, YES preciousssssss... 8-)

This community forum has a section for Ideas and there are plenty and I see new ideas now and then.

Making the radio having roles, permissions & access rights is a standard feature for any server today, and the radio comes with audio streaming as a built in feature anyway, adding roles is not a problem, however radio capabilities is an open end path and will continue to expand with more features every month or so.

I have seen other hams use a web or a PC based remote radio with limited GUI and capabilities, so why can't we do much more with our Flex Radios directly without additional software or a web interface or hardware.

It is very natural that hams would want to hear how their signals and audio sounds at the other end.

You don't have to give your friend TX, only RX if you wish.
