FlexRadio Systems is pleased to announce the availability of SmartSDR v1.4. SmartSDR v1.4 represents several months of intensive work on both new and existing features by our software team. SmartSDR v1.4 is for all FLEX-6000 Signature Series radios. Key features of v1.4 include:
LAN Remote: SmartSDR for Windows can now be operationally “decoupled” from the radio hardware by providing the ability to play slice receiver audio through the default PC speakers and use the default PC microphone to make phone QSOs. This new feature streams compressed audio over the IP connection between the radio and the SmartSDR client on the PC, eliminating the need for the speakers and microphone to be directly connected to the radio hardware. In order to provide diagnostic capabilities for the LAN Remote feature there are two new features. The Network Quality Monitor and Audio Streaming Monitor provide a visual indication of a network’s link capability to adequately stream audio to the PC, which is essential when using a wireless link between the client PC and the radio hardware.
