Is something wrong with the new Flex (6400/6600)?

    There was a post about this last year. IIRC, the guy who had the photograph taken was also one of the editors...and he had grown a beard and chose to ink it in.

    Rosanne Rosanna Danna said about Flex, "it's always something."

    What does "allot" mean?

    It looks like Elecraft is doing a good job with the K4, except that it is still not available. They also say on their web site that they can't give a final price because their suppliers prices may increase. That's not good. It's a sure thing that a loaded K4 will be very expensive so the question is, will it be worth the money? I guess we will see, but until then, Icom is still the sales leader in Direct sampling SDR.

    Thankfully, the "other two" are challenging as well (Yaesu and Kenwood). SDR transceivers are here to stay.

    And yes, the K4 does appear enticing. It appears equal to the Big-3 SDR's in almost every respect. Perhaps it will exceed them in most respects. We'll see.

    Perhaps we live in the golden age of radio today? Technologies and choices abound. Today's rig performance traits and manufacturing qualities seem very high. What's not to like?

    Now if TenTec could climb aboard with a similar ham HF transceiver... ;)

    Don't hold your breath on that one. ;)

    As for the K4? I think it will be a winner. It will be in the 5K class once everything is said and done, but if they do it right...

    If they do it "right," it'll be worth it. :)
    For Elecraft to do the K4 correctly or "right," the company would have to include an IMPECCABLE audio chain. Clean, clear, non-fatiguing audio is an absolute requirement -- akin to Kenwood HF rig fame.
