What Mark states is absolutely true. I use my FLEX-5000A SDR with the
RX2 option for full duplex operations with external transverters. See my
qrz.com page for information on my satellite equipment.
In addition, I can call CQ, monitor my CQ frequency and at the same
time tune the downlink passband for other signals concurrently using the
MultiRX capability of the PowerSDR software. If I wish, I can direct the
CQ downlink to one ear and the other receive frequency to the other ear.
I can also view the satellite downlink's passband with the radio's
I also use the SATPC2 tracking program for computer controlled doppler
correction with my FLEX-5000A.
