    I don't suppress commentary on SDR's here. I will only suppress those being disrespectful or who are being demeaning to others. If you don't wear an Elmer hat here to help others and like to make snide remarks to newer hams, you simply wont be tolerated.

    Examples that are Ok:

    I don't like the Flex 6500, I think they have lousy software.
    I think Apache labs should support the software for their radios

    Examples that are bannable:
    You suck!
    You don't have a clue what your talking about moron!

    Better responses to critical feedback:
    What makes you say that, I like my Flex a lot and thing the software is excellent?
    I like the open source concept for the Anan's and I think the team does an excellent job, what is it that makes you believe that Apach Labs needs to support it?

    Hopefully folks get the idea and will find this a more competent place to discuss issues without moderators suppressing valid questions or trying to belittle you.

  • I bought the Behringer CMD Micro. It is smaller than the 2A and it fits nicely on my desk immediately in front of the keyboard. WOW what a neat addition to he shack! It works great. BIG thanks to Chris W2PA for writing the code and the documentation. I had trouble making the VFO wheels work and would have been stuck without Chris' website. The big wheels have a dual function for DJs. The trick is when you map them to the Midi scheme do not touch the top of the knob at all. very gently rock the edge of the knob so that PowerSDR reads the control as a low of 63 and a high of 65. (If it is reading 0-127 you touched the top of the knob and the control wont work). Once that is saved it all works brilliantly.

    I recently changed VFO-A to the right side and VFO-B to the left side. It seems counter-intuitive but being right handed it means that I can control the main receiver frequency without reaching over to the left side. I switched the volume controls as well but left the other controls the same.

    I see that my forum post got deleted so I have added the picture of how I mapped the Midi controls.

    The console has 20 switches, 3 "wheels" (the Browse knob is a wheel), 5 slider controls and 2 knob controls. Some PowerSDR controls can only be mapped to a wheel and others to a knob.

    A busy ham is mostly a happy ham!
    In my estimation being busy with a hobby means you’re having fun!  Now bear with me a minute here before you disagree, lol.  I got caught in this trap as well when I came back into the house from the shack and said I was tired.  It was when I had just completed another review and finally got it published.  It was the Anan 8000 DLE review in fact.  Anyways.. I was saying it was hard work and my wife said you mean you had fun playing right?    Now I knew I was going to have a hard time with this debate, but I tried it anyways and ended up seeing her point.  Anything you do that is not contributing to bettering one’s self or the household is deemed as play.  That really seemed harsh in my mind because I had worked really hard on the review and at times certainly didn’t think I was having fun. Here is the thing though, if your hobby creates work for you, its still part of your play and hobby time if your not making money for it or bettering yourself. Oh, and let me stop you right there if you thjink relaxing and learning about ham radio is bettering yourself because if your not going to directly make money from it then it doesn’t count and even if you do make money, if your spend is greater than your profit, your still deemed to be having fun. If you didn’t have your hobby which in general you should be enjoying, then you wouldn’t be doing the work that may come along with it, ergo, its all part of your hobby or play time.  And when you look at it that way, no matter how hard your hobby makes you work, what you’re really doing is playing and having fun. So today, I am getting the FM DUO back up and running as I move towards doing a review of it.  And the other improvements I am making to the shack today, well, that’s playing and having fun.  Oh, and opening up my ham computer Hamzilla, you, despite not liking it, I was having fun! So with a smile I just wanted to remind you, then you think your working hard on your hobby, you’re really just playing and having fun!  So enjoy it by golly and if its stressing you, just slow down, take a deep breath, and remember why you ham, its to enjoy and have fun!   73 NI0Z

    This is a compilation of the release notes for PowerSDR mRX PS.

    Sometimes it is nice to know when features were added, or when bugs were fixed. More importantly the notes often contain instructions on how to configure the new settings and the reason that changes were introduced. You may even find features that you didn't know about.

    The notes are also a really good history of the results achieved from the thousands of hours that the volunteer coders put into making PowerSDR the excellent software package that it is. Remember you get the fruits of their labor absolutely free of charge. :D
