    I notice the Sherwood results are not on the Flexradio homepage. Is it that bragging rights are forbidden by agreement with Sherwood (or otherwise), or is Flex modest? Inquiring minds want to know. This is, after all, Texas, where bragging is perhaps the only homegrown fine art.

    np2g, your right..lol I think the reason most Flexers are not asking for it is because they don't know what it is. For me it is not a deal breaker but it is an area where Flex will soon fall behind in the SDR market.

    Sergey - I don't see your purchase in our Direct Sales database so I'm assuming you purchased from a dealer.  Your dealer should be contacting you directly to arrange for the Product Enhancement process.  Please note that this is ONLY for radios manufactured before June 11, 2014.    Please send me a direct email to [email protected] if you have questions.  I can look up by serial number.  73, Greg - K5GJ

    What about the 6300?

    The 6300 will not have the same level of performance as the 6500 and 6700 because it uses a lower speed ADC and does not have preselectors.  It will still be in the top class of receivers and transmitters.

    Adaptive Pre-Distortion. A method of pre-distorting your initial signal in order to counteract anomalies and distortion in the transmitter, amplifier chain, etc. it can reduce transmitter IMD greatly. I suspect we will see this developed shortly after v. 2.0 brings us full remote capability. My guess is that ultimately it will be better on the FLEX than in the competition.

    Pure signal Adaptive or whatever flex will call it Cleans up your adjacent or opposite signal. What it provides to you the user is transmitted power not wasted in. the IMD. Clean sounding audio. No distortion. Smaller footprint. Better use of the frequencies. This technique you already have if you use a cellphone. Yep Remote. Capabilities are just fine. For us to use this technique it would affect for the better every ssb or digi communication. That is a profound impact
