SmartSDR for iOS allows operators to run SmartSDR on an iPad® or iPhone®

Essen, Germany and Austin TX – August 5, 2016: FlexRadio Systems and Marcus Roskosch, DL8MRE announced today a partnership to develop, market and sell a client interface application for both iPad® and iPhone® devices. SmartSDR™ for iOS was designed to offer FLEX-6300, FLEX-6500 and FLEX-6700 owners the ability to operate from home or remotely through their mobile device.   SmartSDR for iOS provides many of the great features of SmartSDR for Windows® plus a few extras.

Full and Remote Control

SmartSDR for iOS can almost fully replace SmartSDR for Windows® and most of its features can now be used from your mobile device without the necessity to use a PC. You can operate in any mode, such as SSB or even CWX including sidetone.

In addition, the application can run along with programs on your PC such as N1MM or CW Skimmer or even along with SmartSDR for Windows as Remote Control.

Extras

On top of that, SmartSDR for iOS offers a visual Band plan and DX-Cluster integration. Band limits, modes and DX-Cluster spots will be displayed right inside the panadapter.

SmartSDR for iOS supports multi-tasking on newer iPads so it can run side-by-side and concurrently with any other app on your device.

To run SmartSDR for iOS the operator will need a FLEX-6000 series radio, an Apple device such as an iPad®, iPhone® or iPod® Touch running iOS 9.0 or greater. A newer iPad (3, Air 1 or newer) or iPhone (5s or better) is recommended.

To run this app at your home, nothing else but a regular Wi-Fi connection is needed. You can immediately start using the app.

To run the app and to operate your FLEX-6000 series radio from outside your shack, you need to have a VPN connection to your home network.

SmartSDR for iOS will be available from the App Store starting August 5, 2016 and is priced at US $49.99. Optional features such as the DX-Cluster and Band Plan are priced at US $4.99. For more information on SmartSDR for iOS client or FlexRadio Systems visit www.flexradio.com.

New Coiltek 14″ Mono Elite Coil for Minelab GPX / GPZ

Coiltek and Radioworld are pleased to announce a new coil for metal detecting gold.

C01-0020_14_MONO ELITE

Read below for some recent independent reports, this first one is from Coiltek’s Facebook page;

They are a great coil, had a demo one out for a weekend with Hermann Steffen and Graham Ashton a few weeks back. Both put their names down for one. Didn’t test it against the Goldstalker but did against the Nuggetfinder 14″ and 12″ adv. on an ugly 1oz. Put it at a depth where the 12″ NF just couldn’t get it and the 14″ NF would only pull you up if gridding or knew it was there. It gave a clear signal that there was something there on the first swing using the Elite. It gave my GPZ a good run as the main diff was the smoother threshold on the GPZ running audio smoothing high, signal being very clear even quite a few inches above the ground whereas the Elite dropped off a bit quicker. I was impressed with the Elite as it did run nice and quiet on the 5000 so I might even have to get one.

Another testimonial from over the Easter weekend; (see attached photo for the nuggets found)

14_inch_ MONO_ELITE_nuggets

I had the opportunity over the Easter weekend to test the new Coiltek 14″ Mono Elite coil on my GPX5000. The coil ground balanced quickly and was stable and quiet. I was working on rocky ground and the coil didn’t false when hitting rocks or being pushed under bushes. I found the coil to be extremely sensitive to small nuggets at depth. I located a 0.5gm nugget at 250mm and a 1.4gm nugget at 300mm. Nuggets down to 0.03gms were recovered. The new coil clearly indicated a 0.5 nugget that the standard 14” mono didn’t recognise. I am very impressed with the new 14″ Mono Elite it will now become my go to coil for this type of ground.

The new coil is suitable for the SD, GP and GPX / GPZ series of detectors. Pricing coming soon !
