    I don't own a Flex, but THANK YOU for your hard work and for donating it to the Amateur community.
    And thanks to the QRZ staff for posting it on the homepage where it can be seen by those who may benefit from it. This is a "newsworthy" item!

    I have used KE9NS's version of PSDR and found it to be very powerful, very trouble free. This software made my Flex 5000 feel like new. The contribution is great.

    Thanks Darrin

    would love to see something like this to work with sdrplay and control a rig like IC-7300. I have an IC-7300 with a PTRX-7300 panadapter.

    Would it be possible to get this software to do rig control via FLrig, DX Commander or Omni-rig? So that it can be used with a wide range of radios? I currently use HDSDR, Omni-rig and an RTL_SDR rcvr as a panadaptor for my FTDX-1200, and it works great...but this program looks amazing.

    After 'lock down' started back in April, I pulled out my FLEX-1500, downloaded the latest ke9ns PowerSDR, got a remote tuner for my in-attic OCF-dipole and have since worked 47 states w/5 watts on FT-8. A big THANK YOU Darin for making this radio BETTER than it was when new.

    Also a big THANK YOU to the developers and maintainers of WSJT-X and GridTracker which, for me, are always on when the Flex and PowerSDR are on.

    Thank you KE9NS for taking this software to the next level. I have owned many other Flex model's, but always return to the 5000 series. Robust, stable software that continues to be updated with awesome features. Never an issue with boot-up time,screen lockups,software crashes like I have had on other SDR models. I appreciate the hard work that goes into this software, and adding new features. Thank you. :)

    Love this! Wish it wasn't exclusive to the Flex system. I'm also a 7300 user with the PTRX7300 adapter and wish some of the SDR programs had this interface. Nice work!
