Please remember these are "SmartSDR Preview Edition" releases to those with deposits who also said they would participate in the pre-version 1 "preview launch." FlexRadio System announced that these would ship slowly in small batches as their "SmartSDR v1.0" solidifies, as their final QC/verification process ramps up, and in order to not overwhelm their support staff.
Ah, the old "use our customers as our QA department" approach. At least these customers knew this up front.
Be absolutely clear that each and every advance order holder who has become a SmartSDR Preview Edition program participant knows their position in this later stage of product development.
Every advance order holder was given the opportunity to participate, or they could hold fo rthe first production SmartSDR v1.0 releases.
I am please and eager to participate - this is going to be a blast!
In cases where it more important to the owner that the production feature set is complete and mature, the recommendation would be that those hams wait.
Biggest question is will mine arrive in time to use for Field Day? (yeah, I would do that!)
