FLEX-6700 Signature Series Transceivers with SmartSDR™
With the FLEX-6000 Signature Series radios, FlexRadio brings a wealth of new capabilities to the amateur including direct digital reception, transmission and networking. At the core of all these new capabilities is SmartSDR. SmartSDR organizes all of the signal processing power in the FLEX-6000 Signature Series radios into an advanced reusable framework. First, the RF subsystems in the FLEX-6000 are virtualized as reusable hardware blocks or Spectral Capture Units (SCU) with specific capabilities. SmartSDR understands the capabilities of each SCU and how to harness its power.
What distinguishes SmartSDR is the simplification of advanced concepts into an elegant graphical user interface (GUI) that places you 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. Now, remote FLEX-6000 Signature Series radios are equal partners in the SmartSDR ecosystem. Imagine the capabilities: Want to add two remote receivers so you never miss another check-in as Net Control? Just click to add and combine them.
SmartSDR takes complex hardware and software and makes it elegant and simple to use. Just as FlexRadio set the standard for visual radio interaction, SmartSDR sets a new bar for visual radio display and control. Multiple high-resolution, 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.
The FLEX-6000 Signature Series was designed with plug-and-play installation as a requirement. There are no drivers or interface cards to install. Just plug the radio into an antenna, power supply and network, load the SmartSDR software on your existing PC and operate.
The FLEX-6700 transceiver allows creation of up to 8 independent Slice Receivers providing reception from 0.03 MHz to 77 MHz and 135 MHz to 165 MHz. Each Slice Receiver can provide independent spectral display of up to 384 kHz.
Slice Receivers allow you to simultaneously visually and audibly monitor multiple frequencies within the same band or multiple bands. SO2R stations can chase multiplier frequencies while holding down a run frequency using a single radio.
Now it is easy to watch for band openings across multiple bands from anywhere on the network. What about monitoring repeaters on 10m, 6m, and 2m at the same time? The possibilities are endless.
