    You have to send into Flex-Radio with a valid MARS license. They send you a firmware update (I think that's what it is). I talked to a fellow MARS licensee who had to go through this procedure. To my knowledge, no one has "hacked" it.

    thanks, that was what i was starting to see from poking around in the software. shame i really dont like having limitations on my gear. you never know when you might need to transmit out of band especially during an emergency.

    Yes, 11M is the habitat of good Samaritans.

    I read that only FLEX models have firmware, the SDR-1000 does not use firmware.
    The PowerSDR is open-source, so it should be no problem to find the frequency limits.

    27.555 usb coming alive with skip isn't generally classed as an emergency.

    I think maybe he thinks folks here will go QRZ on him.

    941TX, I have my ticket and ALL my rigs TX out of band.

    If you figure it out, lemme know.

    I'm considering a Flex 3000 and would use it nefariously.

    Here on the WWRF, we like to have mods to all the radios available.
    We just got there first - is all . . .

    Flexradios are no different than the rest...
