It has been seven months today since I ordered a 6600M. I think FRS should at least consider sending us all a new hat when they ship our radios. Now boys and girls please don't get to nasty about this post.

Happy New Year to all..........

    Now that is a nice Hat!
    Better than those dozen Yaesu hats I have from previous Hamventions.

    I like the complimentary hat idea, especially if it has a special meaning, i.e., one given away only with each pre-order and no other way to receive one.

    Butch, where did you get the personalization done?  I've got a couple of plain Flex hats that would look much better with my name & call on them.

    Hi Rick - I had my name and call added to the Flex hat at the embroidery table at Dayton in 2016 by Gold Metal Ideas (www.goldmetalideas.com), 888-478-0041.  I just asked this company to match the color and font of the Flex Hat embroidery, and as you can see they did a great job.

    I got a hat some time back. It wore it all over the USA, to Xenia and even to Buenos Aires and Colonia (Uruguay). It saw tons of use. I think one of the kids nicked it, because I can't seem to find it now. But I wouldn't be surprised if it was still in my suitcase.

    Thanks.  I live in a sea of corn and soybean fields.  The nearest town 4.5 miles away is population 150.  There is a bar, a place to get  your hair cut, and a post office. 8-) On the upside my noise level is very low.

    Will the radios be released before HamCation 2018?

    Not our call and FRS has said "when it is ready, it is ready" so unlikely you will get a response until they start confirming final payments & delivery instructions. 

    But I do suspect you can get a Hat and add Embroidery at HamCation!

    As where I live it is below zero at night, and single digits during the day - with windchills in the -20 to -40F range - I'd love to be someplace where I could wear a plain old ball-cap rather than something insulated & covering one's whole head! 

    HamCation would be just the ticket if I could play hooky...  but then I'd have to find a big Flex hat!

    Think of Flex release dates like an upcoming Christmas event.  But in this case, we don't know when Christmas is. :)

    When I ordered mine (June 23) I somewhat jokingly told my XYL I’d probably have it by Valentines Day, never realizing how close that prediction would actually be. Now I’m wondering if that was too optimistic.
