Flexing the Flex-Radio Flex-5000a

Using the radio for everything from Catching Openings on 6m to DX on 20m to Rag Chewing on 160m!

PowerSDR 1.18.0 seems very able and very stable.

PowerSDR SVN Alpha Software quite interesting, but as Alpha versions really experimenter’s realm and not ready for prime time.  As my operating time is limited I’ve reverted back to the last full stable release idea and am running 1.18.0  Likely will upgrade to the just released 1.18.1 in a few days.

Have PowerSDR talking to other programs reasonably well.  A bit of tinkering and I’ll have it down pat and talking to everything my shack needs to have talked to!

Dual Monitor Layout working well, and soon to include software presentations of Array Solution’s PowerMaster Watt/SWR meter and Green Heron Rotor controller. Still looking for a software controlled remote antenna switch.

If you havent’ had a chance, you need to get some air time with a Flex!
