RSGB Amateur Radio Survey

The Radio Society of Great Britain is inviting all UK radio amateurs to complete an online questionnaire

The survey will be available until the end of 2015, and an anonymous analysis of the data will be published on the RSGB website with a summary in RadCom sometime in the first quarter of 2016.

FlexRadio PowerSDR

SmartSDR & PowerSDR Flexradio software

The Software that Launched the SDR Revolution in Ham Radio

FlexRadio Systems PowerSDR™ software provides all DSP and hardware control functions for FlexRadio Systems’ FLEX-1500, FLEX-3000* and FLEX-5000* software defined radios.  While software experimentation is encouraged, no programming experience is ever required to enjoy your software defined radio.  The complete application is provided in compiled form so that you can simply download, install and run it.  Written in a combination of ANSI C and C#, FlexRadio PowerSDR software is easy to learn and modify.  Source code is available to encourage amateur SDR research and experimentation.  The capabilities of the FlexRadio PowerSDR software are limited only by your imagination.

*FLEX-5000 manufacturing discontinued May 2013.
*FLEX-3000 manufacturing discontinued October 2014.

SmartSDR for Windows

RackMulti smartsdr SmartSDR-4pans-1wideThe Next Generation SDR software for the Next Generation SDR

SmartSDR™ for Windows sets a new bar for visual radio display and interactive control.  Following the simple is better rule, we built a new graphical user interface that is easy to learn and instinctual to use.  Multiple high-definition, real-time spectral displays are at the heart of the SmartSDR experience.  Intuitive controls are hidden from view to minimize clutter yet are instantly available when needed.

SmartSDR is the core of the Signature Series family, organizing all of the signal processing power in the FLEX-6000 Signature Series radios into an advanced reusable framework.  First the receiver subsystems including preselectors, preamplifiers and digitizers in the FLEX-6000 are virtualized as reusable hardware blocks called Spectral Capture Units (SCUs) with specific capabilities.  SmartSDR understands the capabilities of each SCU and how to harness its power.

What distinguishes SmartSDR is the simplification of these advanced concepts into an elegant graphical user interface that places the operator in complete control.  Want to create an additional Panadapter to watch for possible 10m band openings?  No problem, simply click to add the Panadapter and SmartSDR directs everything from the advanced signal processing software down to the filters in the SCU to form an optimized receiver.  Want to decode all of the CW signals on 40m while working DX on 20m?  It’s just a few clicks away with SmartSDR and one of many SmarSDR open API enabled applications.
