There will be NO Panafall on the 6000 series Smart SDR software. Unless you want to wait for a year or so. Flexradio CEO Mr. Youngblood promised the panafall will be released before the 1 year Free software window. Since Flexradio's past track record on delivering promises is very poor, one has to wonder what else is going to be missing in SmartSdr?
Cmon Flexradio, The Panafall is the major advantage of owning a Flexradio. You are going to make early adopters wait up to a year to get the Panafall? What a way to run a business. Yet more promises.
Stan - you owe FlexRadio yet another apology.
The Beta Software and Initial Full Release will not have a Waterfall (yet).
Here is what they have said:
>I'm afraid you've gotten bad information. As VP of Software Development at
>FlexRadio, I can state with authority that not only will SmartSDR have a
>waterfall display, but that it is high on the priority list for us. This
>is the same position we have had since SmartSDR was conceived. While it is
>a high priority, we will not hold shipment of FLEX-6000 series radios for
>this feature. Thus, the initial release of SmartSDR will not likely
>include a waterfall mode. We do not have a timeline for release of this

>everyone that has purchased a 6000 series radio to this point. I hope this

I can state unequivocally that anyone who has already purchased a radio is
going to have waterfall before the end of their included software period.

Absolutely, positively you will get waterfall WAY before the end of the
free software period. It is high on the priority list but I am sure you
would not want us to hold up shipments to add that one feature. After all,
this is a software defined radio so it can be completely upgraded with a
download. I am 100% confident that you will be more than pleased with what
you will get within the free period.
Gerald Youngblood, K5SDR
President and CEO
I have no idea why you make up constant rubbish, rant on spreading half-truths and falsehoods.
You've no skin in the game, no Flex-6000 on order, no good intentions and yet are fixated on claiming things always remain the same.
If you had attended the last several FlexRadio Systems Dayton Banquets, and listened up, it was always clear that features would phase in. Exactly which and when, that was in the air.
How about since you won't get a SmartSDR Panadapter right from the get go that you cancel your pre-order and ask for a refund?
Oh, forgot you don't have any skin in the game and have made a near full time hobby of being as negative as possible.
I hope you someday find something that makes you happy in this hobby. Otherwise there are plenty of options in other hobbies, if they will have you in their ranks.
So sad old man...
