    I have recently purchased a used flex 3000, my first SDR radio. Small learning curve but it is working with my Dell Inspiron computer perfectly! I am able to run HRD free version wthout any problems. At the same time I can search the internet and everything works 100% I get unsolicited audio reports telling me I have outstanding audio. I work SSB for the most part but cw works fine. When I first got the 3000 I talked with Dudley several times and he was very helpful. Just want to say I am very happy with the Flex 3000. I have been a ham for 58 yrs and didn't think I would adapt to a SDR . Well I don't see me returning to a radio with knobs! Thanks again for a wonderful product and outstanding customer service! Maybe someday I will upgrade to a newer Flex but for now I am very happy with the Flex 3000! Jim K9HKS
