    If price is a factor, remember also that you might be able to sell off some off your existing non-SDR station, should you notice it's gathering dust from lack of use.
    The cash you free up, Should you decide to sell, might need to be factored into your thinking when deciding between the 3 Flexradio models. I still haven't sold my older rigs, I still enjoy them, but I could have afforded the 6700 If I'd factored in the difference. Two of my older rigs are Flexradios, I'm still not sure I'll ever part with them or the 6500 I bought. Then again I may at some point sell them all and buy a 6700. image
    You probably have already factored this in.

    Welcome to Flex world, Joe.
    I am a Flex6500 user since 2013 fall and I feel very satisfied with it.  I completed WAS CW, Digital with Flex6500 since 2014 by lotw and am now looking for ND and WV on Ph to be confirmed by lotw to complete Triple Play.
    I hope I can contact you soon on phone.

    Totally agree with your mother. Always buy the best and you will have few regrets Love my 6700. I suspect that if you buy a 6300 you will soon want to trade up.

    Ken,

    North Dakota weather is brutal and most of my antennas are down for repair.  I expect to be back on the air in September.  Contact me then and I'll be happy to help you put ND in your log.

    Jay,

    Nice thought.  I have a nice S-Line, Drake Line, and other old stuff to sell.
