I asked because there is diference between SUNSDR2 and SUNSDR2pro. The same question was raised on Russian forum on www.cqham.ru. Firmware for 2pro and 2 is diferent i am guessing. You were brave.

Hi, my PTT is not activated, neither with the external pedal nor with the PTT of the Mic2 microphone.
Neither does it modulate me when pressing TX. Pressing Tx does change to TX, but does not modulate
I use the SunSDR2DX

The same here, I am using MIC-2 input. Also MOX seems not working, but I can see my modulation.
Anyone manage to transmit using any of the available way?
I also found the NB filter mutes the RX totally (I already open bug report for it).

My TX is working on CW (but I use winkeyer so maybe that helps) and digital (WSJTx) but not on SSB with either microphone or macro. JTDX with TCI I cannot make work even though TCI is ok to Swisslog and SDC. I think it is in the pre-Alpha stage really, should have been held back a bit to get some basic functionality. It is very hard to produce meaningful bug reports when the software is beyond basic usage. Just saying, just an opinion, before you all start throwing things at me.

Fully agree Erik. I was honestly expecting the majority of features from v2, in a slightly buggy state. I am looking forward to it gaining features over time.

...can't get JTDX to work with TCI.. So I'm glad it's not just me.
Actually, I agree Erik, with some basic functionality missing, it is somewhat hard to evaluate and produce meaningful Bug Reports. Released a tad early perhaps..

Totally agree this is not what i have come to expect from EE, I almost feel as if I was catapulted back into times of being a FLEX USER! this is what drove many away from them!

very disappointing,
also as I mentioned an ALPHA version is NOT a BETA VERSION and a BETA version is what was said that was going to be released!

call me names or hit me with insults if you wish my thought is this should not have been put out!

IQ Stream seems to work with SDC.
Cat control via TCI works fine as well, while TCI macro has some problem.
Maybe the protocol is different from the previous release, in the log appears a ExpertSDR3-1.5 that I never seen before.

All I tried to do was a simple 1--instance connection direct to JTDX via TCI.....no joy, and I don't know why. I'll just wait for future releases I think, unless I can think of something new tomorrow..

After applying the firmware upgrade for a second time (the first didn't really apply) cw works...sometimes.
I mean that if I start a fresh instance ov EESDR3 it works but if I close it and reopen, I'm not sure it works again.
The down side is that the firmware upgrade 9 prevented the reliable EESDR2 to works on CW. It simply does not key, so since I consider this version to "young" to make serious radio activity I had to revert to firmware V.8 to have cw working flawlessly as before.
Did someone noticed the same behaviour?

On macOS I have tried everything but no chance to get ExpertSDR3 to run. The software opens but nothing more. Very unfamiliar and cumbersome in terms of settings the new interface. I prefer to wait for a version that can also update the firmware.

Hello everyone.

Running a Sunsdr2 pro. EESDR 3 opens and runs on OSX 10.14.6. without a firmware upgrade. It appears there is no way to upgrade firmware on OSX. As a consequence, there is no cw tx, just a hangup of the program. A restart of the sdr is required then to get back into rx mode. Rx mode seems to work fine.

No E-coder support in this release is a killer for me.

Back to EESDR2.

My friends are on the market for sdr radios and they're anxious to see the esdr3 software but I guess they'll be getting the new Andromeda or flex instead.
