Version 1.3 is available now on the same download link.

This is slightly re-written and includes updates for 5MContest and some other corrections.

Please note that the download link on the pileupdx (Pileup SunSDR) website is without my permission and leads to an out-of-date document. Please only use my personal download link in this Thread.

The User Manual Addendum is now at version 1.7

The changes are mostly concerned with Yuri's UT4LW SDC software which is now at version 6.53 and has a number of new features. These include:
1. Synchronising second rigs to the ESDR2 server for those running the MB1, SunSDR2 or Colibri.
2. Synchronising devices or software across a LAN to a second computer.
3. A Band Map window as an addition to Skimmer or to offload local Skimmer Spots from the ESDR2 Panorama to reduce screen clutter.
4. English and Russian language help files.

The download link for SDC has been updated in the Addendum and the latest version of this resource is at the usual location, repeated here for convenience: www.dropbox.com/s/lhvwwuyuxpoq7gs/2016%20Expert%20Electronics%20Addendum.pdf?dl=0

The most significant change is the introduction of an new alternative Skimmer that can be used instead of, or with, the Afreet CW Skimmer. Yuri's (UT4LW) SDC Skimmer Server is described on pages 38 to 44.

SDC is now at version 8 and the download link has been updated.

The details of ESDR2 connections to FLDigi and JTDX are updated.

The download link for the Addendum is the same.

The User Addendum Manual has been updated.

With the Afreet CW Skimmer able to be integrated into SDC 9, I have removed the old references to SDC v8 and provided greater configuration details for SDC v9. SDC is now at version 9.20 ( www.dropbox.com/s/nji20fdkkf7p6q5/SDC_9_setup.zip?dl=0 )

This has necessitated a re-write of the 5MContest section.

As ever the Addendum is at www.dropbox.com/s/lhvwwuyuxpoq7gs/2017%20Expert%20Electronics%20Addendum.pdf?dl=0
