    Thanks Gerald. Sad to see FreeDV misses out this time around. I hope it is not too long until SmartSDR Waveform Interface sees the light of day.

    and if I may be so bold....
         perhaps break some of the major pieces out to make separate releases.

    In any case, I am still enjoying the 6500 as is!    (do not need at this time FM / thin net / FreeDV)

    No - I don't think so.  

    31 Jan was an estimate.  Being a s/w C coder for 20 years I've seen my share of this.

    Hi all

    Perhaps I did not do my research thoroughly before I bought my 6300.

    I was under the impression that it was an all mode radio and would include basic functions like FM.

    ****************The UK advertising stated it was all mode.**************

    I use FM on a regular basis and personally do not care about remote operations and other computer "geekery". but I understand the requirements of others.

    I am a radio ham and want to use a radio.

    The 6300 is a fine radio except for lack of FM functionality.

    I own a flex 3000 and a flex 5000 .

    I understand that flex users are always on the leading edge of Hi tech SDR and Flex caters for all types of users both radio hams and computer techs and LAN wizards.

    But Flex please get the radio to what an all radio should do FIRST. and soon.

    73

    Bob

    Gerald,

    My radio is packed so do not be in any hurry. 
    Moving in 3 Weeks from California and sightseeing the USA underway to Amelia Island, Florida.
    Looking forward to use v1.4 sometime in April or May when I get to my new residence.

    Till then 73

    Hi When I bought my 6300 it was advertised as an all mode radio. No one said it probably will be an all mode radio eventually.

    @G4DYO - It is and was multi-mode; just not as multi as you would have liked.

    @ MW0PIC - It fill be nowhere near "all mode" even with FM. You do realise how many modes there are in today's amateur radio, hi hi?

    Funnily enough, when I researched the market and decided to buy by 6300, I did not have those enhanced expectations. That was why I was on this forum before I bought (to the annoyance of some) asking all sorts of pre-sales questions.

    Flex Radio Systems has been nothing but above board on their marketing, the current state of the art of their products, and road map on the inclusion of newer features and functionality.  If you are dissatisfied because your expectations were higher than what was publicized (the rest of us understood what we were buying), go find a mirror.  You'll quickly find the person who is at fault for setting bad expectations.

    That kind of remark is expected on this forum. Please read my post.

    The radio was advertised in the UK as all mode ,and it was reasonable for that to include FM.

    I expect now, that this thread will get personal and I don't need any of that nonsense.

    I am allowed to make reasonable comment without fear or expectation of abuse and criticism because I dared to state my views on a subject.

    This stuff http://www.theakstons.co.uk/Ales/Old-Peculier/ is *proven* cerebral lubrication. Don't try using any of your native brewed stuff, if you sent it to a lab they would tell you your camel was pregnant, hi hi. Just off to have a cold bottle now, in fact.

    Was never annoyed with you, just wondered how much longer you were going to research. You did the right thing by kicking all the tires twice, better to have confidence about the radio.  I blame the road for the bumps and praise the rig for the ride.

    You are correct that we said the date was an estimate based on best information we had at the time.  I have been involved hardware and software businesses since 1976.  I have learned over and over and over again (and over again) that hardware is easy - software is hard.  You do your best to accurately estimate project magnitude and manage to a schedule but in complex systems "stuff happens."  

    There is another strategy that many companies use (e.g. Apple).  Never talk publicly  at all about your plans.  Then no one can grumble if you miss your internal estimate.  By the way, Apple has infinite money to pay for engineers and testing.  They and Microsoft still have to come out with point releases to fix broken stuff they didn't find in testing.

    Bob MW0PIC, even with the addition of FM to the 6000 family, it still will not be "All Mode" radio.   There are more "modes" out there than you can shake a stick at.  If all you are going to do is read a top line of a marketing slick and then lay down 2500 Euro's, then you are at fault, not Flex Radio.  I did my research and I was not, and am still not disappointed. 

    Caveat Emptor!

    Guy - I don't think we've met but I definitely can agree with your **** choice!  I used to "commute" to Kings Langley for work and I miss the fine brews of "G-Land".  Old Peculier is awesome!  I've had 1 or 2 of their seasonals too.... Cheers!  73, Greg - K5GJ
