Works perfectly as a native MacOS client for the Flex 6700  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have had Maclogger for quite some time, and now DogparkSDR. Don makes great products and his service is amazing. Have a question? Ask and he responds very quickly!

This product works great, but if you are wondering if you like it just download it. You will get full functionality for 20 minutes at time so you can try it out.

It has some limitations compared to the windows version of SSDR from flex, like only two pans, but I suspect if it follows the improvement path of Maclogger it will eventually have full functionality. The layout is a little different than SSDR, but once you get the hang of it there are no issues.

I am using it in conjunction with MacDoppler to control my Flex-6700 for satellite work and it's works perfectly.

DogPark SDR software is awesome!!!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Folks, if you are a MAC owner and have, or will soon own, a FEX 6000 series radio, this is the native Mac SDR software to download and use. I have just took delivery of my brand-new Flex 6300 and love it. This Mac native SDR software is a breeze to install and operate.

I have been a long and faithful user of some of Don's other Dog Park Software products like MacDoppler (for satellite tracking and rig control) & MacLogger (for a great log book). These are also very stable and extremely user friendly programs for hams, like me, that prefer Apple OS over Windoze OS.

Enjoy!!!

An excellent piece of software for the Apple OS  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
What a wonderful surprise it was for me to discover Dogpark Apple software. For years there had been talk of someone creating a software package to run the Flex Radios under the Apple OS. Finally Don has done just that .Like many other Apple users I have been running Flex software under bootcamp on my iMac. Now under Dogpark one click of my mouse can have the Flex radio's audio coming through the built in iMac speakers. Use of a USB microphone is easily accomplished . For people like me who can tire at looking for years at the same GUI it is great to be able to turn to the dogpark GUI just to see something totally different. Nothing is lost function wise in using Dogpark and it can show itself in a variety of ways from a simple GUI to a more advanced feature set. Added to all this is the pleasure of being able to contact Don, the designer of the software, directly. Don as well is open to new suggestions for the softeware and he is willing to implement changes when there arises a consensus among the Dogpark community to do that. That the software is easily available for trial is a big plus and I encourage anyone using the Apple OS try out Dogpark.

Great software  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Don is a developing machine! This software is literally updated daily. When I get home from work each day, I check and install the next update. Features added daily. It is not as full featured (yet) as the windows version but it's getting close. Very attractive interface as well. Works great with Maclogger DX. I am a new Mac guy (always had windows machines) and this software is very impressive. If you have a Mac and a Flex 6000 series radio, definitely check out this software.

Only OSX Full Featured Flex-6000 series software  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
...and it's great ! Recently bought a nice Flex-6300 but was very disappointed with all the fussing that it took to make it connect to the Flex, and even then it didn't work fully. Very recently, Don has brought out dogparkSDR, the first fully functional software to make the Flex-6000 series run as well as SmartSDR and Ham Radio Deluxe (not an easy task, I can tell you by experience... a LOT of experience...) BUT... download DogParkSDR free to try it for a brief period. Nice Panafall, allows antenna tuning, freq change, band change, even split... and all from a small window you can move anywhere. Want full logging, DX spotting, maps, many more functions? Buy the rock-solid MacLoggerDX to add to it and your station is complete... ON A MAC... finally something easy to use, colorful and attractive, and completely competitive with the Windows side. Great software, highly recommended for your Flex-6300, 6500 and 6700....
