Yesterday I integrated SDR Console with a beta S3 receiver from ELAD. My first impression is that it's a terrific receiver and will be of great interest to SWPs, DX-ers and government origanisations. I'll make some videos later. With the front end wide-open there's no overload at all, despite a few close medium wave transmitters.
A couple of screenshots:
Stay tuned for more updates.

Important changes for QO-100 user, see below. What's new / changed in 3.0.16:
With any luck I'll have an ELAD S3 next week. Here is V3 playing a recording made by Nils, DK8OK using his S3.
24 MHz wide recording, 19.4 MHz usable!
The Hermes-Lite is an outstanding low-cost direct down/up conversion software defined amateur radio HF transceiver based on a broadband modem chip and the Hermes SDR project. If you are looking for a small QRP transceiver with excellent performance for the price then consider HL2.
Below are images of the build 9 boards published on the Hermes Lite mailing list by Steve KF7O.
For more information visit the Hermes Lite page.
What's new / changed in 3.0.15:
Memories Organiser now correctly processes ^ and v buttons when more than one entry is selected.
Updated the Serial port PTT:
Fixed problem setting offset tuning option for RTL E4000 dongles.
FUNcube dongles – correctly support opening via bus/address. Please Search again for your dongles as the USB Bus and Address is now part of the dongle’s own address definition.
Hermes-Lite 2 (HL2) added Tx support.
Pluto – catch crash during device search (autodetect) when the ad9361 doesn’t start – happens with modified Pluto boards if a LO signal is missing.

Remote Server (Funcube)
Version 3.0.13 introduced analog S meters and resulted in requests for transparency. One of the big features of SDR Console is the use of Direct2D graphics which is a lot more complicated than the GDI/GDI+ used in many other ham radio programs such as Ham Radio Deluxe.
Working out transparency wasn't easy, finally a Microsoft example showed me how to do this. A day when you don't learn something is a day wasted.
Here's an example of transparency. This will be part of 3.0.14.

Turbo, An Improved Rainbow Colormap for Visualization
On Tuesday, August 20, 2019 Google posted an interesting colour scheme which they named 'Turbo'. Read more about this in the blog entry (link is above). Below is the colour map in action on the 25m shortwave broadcast band. As of 3.0.13 this is a standard colourmap[ in SDR Console.
Also of interest is the use of a SNR (Signam to Noise) S Meter option.
