XVTR support for 10+ Transverters in SmartSDR?

  • Updated 1 year ago
My new Flex-6600 with SmartSDR 2.4.9 is now 1 month old.
I am operating my SW & Microwave Station fully Remote so
the Remote functionality and Transverter support was most
I have 10+ Transverters covering 144 MHz to 76 GHz which
I want to control from the SmartSDR Band panel.
Reading manuals, searching the community I have tried several
possible solutions without success.

1. USB Cable BIT Control (FTDI C232HM MPSSE)
     Limit to 8 XVTR? The BIT setup table has a lower/upper frequency settings
    for band definition. Very good.

2. USB Cable BCD Control (FTDI C232HM MPSSE)
     Built a 4 bit BCD to 14 encoder. The limitation in this case
     was the fixed US band definitions in the three available bit tables?
     222 & 904 MHz is not a Ham Band in Region 1 and 76GHz is not
     included in the tables.

3. Flexwire I2C Control
     No Commands available for sending band data from the XVTR setup?
4. SmartSDR CAT
     No Cat Commands for reading/setting a XVTR Band
     No TCP/IP Commands (XVTR) available for sending band data from the XVTR setup?   
4. DDutil?

Any clues for a solution?
