FMSuite 2.2 for SDR# is now available

FMSuite 2.2 can be downloaded from the link to the right.  The following changes are in this version:

All Plugins

  • Theming has been implemented where possible.  Note that only Dark Mode / Light Mode settings are used, not individual colors, due to compatibility issues with some Microsoft controls.
  • Improved the reliability of multitasking.
  • Replaced obsolete or deprecated Microsoft features with current technology.
  • Replaced icons and images that would have been invisible in Dark Mode themes.
  • Fixed the case where permissions to file "FMSuiteException.txt" was denied.
  • Replaced tab controls with radio buttons because theming is incompatible with Microsoft tab controls.
  • All software was upgraded to the current Microsoft .NET Core 5 platform.

Data Tools

  • Upgraded the Data Tools Zip file processing to a built-in Microsoft function.
  • Removed the "Custom" delimiter option and replaced it with the "Pipes" option due to reliability issues.

Frequency Manager + Scanner

  • Moved Scan Decisions and Frequency Data Display plugins out of Frequency Manager + Scanner and into their own plugins.
  • Removed Scan Decisions and Frequency Data Display options from the Preferences dialog as they are now defunct.
  • Removed the Automatic Frequency Rejection feature in favor of new features in SDR#.
  • Fixed a case where the scanner could get stuck if the radio frequency doesn't change when requested.
  • Changed the "Locked" or "Lock" labels to "Ignore", "Ignored", or "Ign" to remove confusion with the word "Lock" as used by hardware radio scanners.
  • When scanning sometimes a radio will not tune to a requested frequency.  To indicate this an error popup will appear and recommend actions.  It is unclear whether this issue is caused in SDR# or in the radio.

  1. Q: Are you planning to update FMSuite 2.2 to support SDR-Console 3.X too? I would love to have 1 Freq. Manager that I can use across SDR#, SDR-Console and SDRUno with 1 data base. I mostly use SDR-Console over either SDR# or SDRUno but sometimes drop down to the other two for some specialized functions.

    1. The link for SDR Console 2.x and 3.x is just below the link for the SDR# version. The main difference between the SDR#, SDR-Console, and SDR Uno versions is that only the SDR# version has the scanner and its related modules. All three platforms support the same database so its easy to share data across platforms.
