Whether you are the most serious contest operator, DX chaser, rag chewer, or you just love to “play radio,” Maestro is fun and easy to operate. Maestro harmoniously combines a high definition 8 inch touch display in concert with ergonomically designed controls to enhance ease of use and maximize workflow efficiency in virtually any SmartSDR™ application.
FlexRadio in terviewed some of the world’s top contest/DX operators to understand their demanding operating style and personal goals. Over and over we heard that the most frequently used controls should be intuitive, single function, require minimal hand motion and be comfortable to use over long periods. The message was “keep it simple.” Maestro orchestrates control function, placement and ergonomics for maximum tempo in the most important configurations including DX, split, SO2R, Run, S&P, and Multi operation.
We recently worked with the Northern Corridor Radio Group in Perth this year contesting the Remembrance Day contest; bringing along a Flex6300 transceiver and the Maestro head. Everyone who used the radio was hugely impressed. The waterfall functionality on the touch screen, the ergonomic and configurable set out of the operating controls, and just the sheer quality of the radio itself stood so far out from everything else in the shack and was a big hit for the weekend.
Maestro places the most frequently used controls directly at your fingertips. Controls are labeled for intuitive operation and designed to minimize hand motion for the most common operations. Occasionally used controls are easily accessible on the large touch screen display bypassing the complexity of multi-function buttons and multi-level menus found on most transceivers. Like modern phones and tablets, capacitive touch control is provided on the large LCD display for intuitive pan, zoom, tune, and menu operation.
Flexradio continues to set the standard for high resolution, real time spectral display in amateur radio transceivers. Maestro now extends that same “HD visual radio” capability from the PC based SmartSDR for Windows™ to the 8 inch touch screen format.
NOW YOUR SHACK IS AS BIG AS YOUR LAN
Ever wish you could monitor the bands or work DX from the comfort of your living room, out on the patio or even whilst away from home on a business trip? Now you can! Maestro’s small footprint and minimal wiring cleans up your operating position and lets you mount the radio virtually anywhere in the shack or around the house. Its sleek, lightweight design makes it easy to carry or pack. An optional battery pack even lets you operate completely untethered. Off the shelf VESA and VESA to RAM® adapters provide a wealth of mounting options.
