EXPERT ELECTRONICS: ExpertSDR2 1.3.0 Beta 1
Here is the April newsletter
Today we've published the ExpertSDR2 1.3.0 Beta 1 for all our devices. All changes are mentioned in the Release Notes, as always. We thank everyone who shared his opinion about new software.
The purpose of ALPHA/BETA/RC versions of the software is to collect user's feedback on the new features and to locate possible issues which could be missed while internal testing. These versions may have bugs, which will be fixed in further software releases.
We'd like to welcome you to the Hamvention 2019, it will be held May 17, 18 and 19, at the Greene County Fairgrounds and Expo Center. You can find us in the Building 4 Volta, booths 4211-4212.
We are happy to inform macOS users, that from now on MacLoggerDX supports TCI. Quote from MacLoggerDX developer Don Agro, VE3VRW, regarding the published beta with TCI support: "Preliminary testing has been done on all radios but it is still a beta - if you run into problems please enable Debug Log in the Radio prefs, attempt to connect and then Email Debug Log from the File menu including a screen-shot of your Radio prefs".
Last March Enzo, IW7DMH, made a very interesting, short video where you can see two different ways to setup a basic SO2R contest station.
In a previous newsletter I shared a couple of educational videos about SDR by David Kennett, W8KFJ. Since then he released the third and final one.
We'd like to thank Werner Schnorrenberg, DC4KU, for his detailed report about the three ways how to work with the ColibriNANO, on English and German:
- connect it via USB with the Notebook/PC (Standard)
- connect it via Raspberry and LAN/WLAN with the Notebook or Smartphone/Tablet in your home network
- connect it via Raspberry to the internet (www)
Those who are interested to be an alpha/beta tester please let me know, I can send you the download link as soon as any preview/alpha/beta/RC version (BE AWARE IT'S MOST PROBABLY BUGGY) will be available.
We created a new page Bug report for the Alpha/Beta/RC to help us synchronize your feedback for the published Alpha/Beta/RC versions of the ExpertSDR2. On this page we'll list all known and reported bugs for the latest published software version.
