Of course it wasn't all plain sailing. I found that StarLog would happily work with either the Flex 6000 or with the FT5000 but not both. A few coding tweaks and that was resolved. I also chickened out of trying to use a single paddle for both rigs, so I've brought my old Bencher out of retirement to be the paddles for the Flex rig. Depending on how things go the MagPad and the Bencher may get swapped around before too long!
So this is an important day. I shall now be able to start using my controller for making QSOs. I'm quite sure this will yield all manner of ideas for improvements. You'll get to hear about it here. Now I am off to play radio!
