No support for your favorite mode yet? One of the tremendous advantages of Software Defined Radio (SDR) is the ability to conveniently and easily add new capabilities. The FLEX-6000 Signature Series radios and companion SmartSDR software are designed to leverage new communication technologies as they are created such as new digital voice and digital data modes.
The Waveform feature in SmartSDR allows for the seamless addition of new operating modes to your FLEX-6000 Signature Series radio by simply downloading and installing a Waveform module or “plug-in”. When a waveform module is loaded, the module registers with SmartSDR and delineates the modes it supports. These new modes are then immediately available in the standard mode selection interface inside SmartSDR. You just select the new mode and begin operating. It is that simple.
Some waveform modes may come with a companion application that provides mode specific setup, configuration and operation. For instructions on how to install Waveform modules, please refer to the Waveform section in the SmartSDR for Window Software User’s Guide for detailed information.
