With the contest season approaching I thought I would share some new insight I have gained to the Flex community. 
Being a little fanatic about SO2R with Flexradio I have spent the last month testing Flex suitability for SO2R with different logger programs. I plan to make a more elaborate report when time allows but I must share my recent experiences with Writelog and its fabulous contest super simulator (CSS). Latter has been developed by Wayne W5XD and he has been extremely helpful last weeks with dozens of email back and forth to get it "rocking" for my PC and Flex.
I must say that CSS is really awesome when I got it to work for SO2R. The good part is you may use the CSS with a new "runmode script" he has developed that makes SO2R and duelling CQ a "kids game". You even can use the CSS with the WL demo with some few limitations. The really unique part is that you may do SO2R with CQ on band and then with other radio S&P by using the tumb wheel and finding new stations on the band map, Very realistic!! Very cool!!

Here are some links from my blog about CSS: http://remotedxandcontestblog.sm0hrp.se/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Contest-simulataor-SO2R-SM0HRP.jp...
The way to configure WL with Flex can bee seen here: http://remotedxandcontestblog.sm0hrp.se/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/WL_6700_config.jpg

So if you are looking for a new, IMO, best Flex contest simulator on market try the CSS. 
GL and see you in the contests -  perhaps next week in SAC CW?

There are several contest loggers to be used with Flexradio. For contesting including remote contesting N1MM and WriteLog are in particular well suited if you run SO2R. WriteLog recently came out with a simulator which is very realistic. You have a band scope and you may even check your log vs what was sent. Or connect a Flex-6700 and use it to Search and Pounch. BTW WL can now be used with a Maestro and only two slices.
