Like most contest operators, I haven’t been a big fan of SDR in a contest environment. This very cost effective accessory solves all the problems of using software defined radios in contesting.
FlexControl is a VFO and radio control accessory suitable for all FlexRadio Systems’ software defined radios. Developed by Flex in partnership with serious contesters, the ergonomically designed FlexControl has the ability to tune multiple VFOs, RIT and XIT with a simple turn and/or press of the weighted, smooth action tuning knob.
In addition to the multi-function tuning knob, there are three, multi-state programmable push buttons that can be assigned to a large range of radio control actions, includ ing changing tune step, RX filters or CW speed, and many more functions.
Unlike other tuning knobs, the FlexControl is not another “mouse” like device and will continue to control PowerSDR, SmartSDR or your SDR even if the active Windows program is neither PowerSDR nor SmartSDR. This is known as the “focus issue” and the FlexControl solves it; allowing you to have your logging program or any other program active while interactively operating the radio with the FlexControl.
