FLEX-6400/FLEX-6400M/FLEX-6600/FLEX-6600M now certified for CE
We are pleased to announce that we have successfully completed all requirements for CE certification for the FLEX-6400, FLEX-6400M, FLEX-6600 and FLEX-6600M radios! We are now transitioning the changes made during the certification process into manufacturing in order to begin deliveries into Europe. We are currently expediting components that will allow us to begin delivery to our EU distributors in June.
Thanks to those of you who have been patiently waiting while we completed this process.
Robert Lonn Member ✭✭Congratulations to Flex Engineering to meet these guidelines!! Lots of happy Europeans today!!! I wish Trump was a Ham Radio Operator!!! He could have a FLEX on Air Force One!!! Hey, can we get a Flex on the ISS!!! :-)

Andrew VK5CV Member ✭✭There is a 6700R on ISS already!
Robert Lonn Member ✭✭Had my Flex 6600M for a week, finally unpacked the microphone to start the TX testing, plugged in the Mic, as well as the PTT RCA jack.. Placed it into a Dummy Load, Needed to have the PTT feature to register SmartLink... After That was completed and the radio was registered, I went on 20 meters and called CQ!! WHAT!!! No RF output or modulation??? Turns out the Dummy Load was ME!!! Forgot to activate the BIAS setting for the Mic!! All was well,, 20 meters was not open, but had a single contact, Great Audio report with the hand held microphone!! ****,,, now I need to go to work,,, OK more fun on Friday,, Vacation Day!!! :-)
Mike VE3CKO Member ✭✭✭I believe there are 2 Flex 6700's on the ISS.0

I've spent decades working purchases between currencies, and yes it is hard to control for a small purchase like a radio.
But there are techniques (buy the currency you will need ahead, prepay the actual purchase, buy a currency future, using bank accounts in different currencies to transfer ahead, or simply invest the needed money while waiting) that can help.
It's hard to discipline oneself to hedge on expected currency needs.
I never moan about the overseas producer myself, as unless they are a major exporter they won't protect me, and I know the tools I could have/should have used.
Currencies are much like weather - if you are patient enough wait long enough, they often move in your advantage.
BTW the short term US Dollar market trends appear to favor hedging even now, lest you have to pay even more when the transaction goes through.

Can someone please post a link to or a copy of the latest (or even better - all of) the EU certification documents for the Flex-Radio Signature Series 6000/6400/6600 so that our EU friends can maintain a copy of these. It is a requirement of some countries that the certification documents be maintained by the station owners. You mention the process is complete, but as we all know: "The job is not complete until the paperwork is done!"
Paul - GI4FZD Member ✭✭Its near the end of June now,,are they due in European distributors next week or is there another delay?
We are preparing the CE radios for shipment. You need to contact your distributor to get their latest update on delivery.1
Paul - GI4FZD Member ✭✭Thanks Tim0
Mark Chamberlain Member ✭✭Hi Tim Can you clarify please, does this mean the ce radios are built and boxed ready to be shipped ? Regards Mark M0ZSS0
Tim I am afraid this looks like another delay. Patently waiting for almost a year.... Karel ON4FI1
When I went to purchase mine they were totally out of them. Couldn't get me one due to parts delay . . . Just saying
Mark - our distributors have been notified as to their shipping schedule. Please contact them for updated information.0
Troost u Karel, hier reeds meer dan een jaar geleden besteld....0
Johan / SE3X Member ✭✭Not only the radios delayed to Europe. I ordered a few simple things like a FHM-2 handmic and a second Flexcontrol many weeks ago, to be read as today months. No delivery sofar, only mail after mail to my European supplier answering ... Not in stock, not coming from USA, backlog, delayed ...
I can live with that for the time being. have a Flexcontrol and a Maestro already. But I would like to buy for my second Flex, my 6500, as well.
Can't help feeling that in FRS world Europe is a loooong way away! Don't like that feeling, guess FRS answer would be that all customers are equal, all markets are at eq importance. But having to wait for a simple thing as a mic for my Maestro for months?? And yes, I'm a bit grumpy today1
http://trade.ec.europa.eu/doclib/docs... maybe read on pages 15 and 16, article 85437001 and 85437006? Radioamateur devices?0
Johan / SE3X Member ✭✭Can't really see how a Flexradio would fit that descriptions? No phonepatching gear the Flexradio I belive as to 85437001 . Not much of audiomixer as article 85437006 describes. Guess Bob Heils new hamradiomixer they introduced at Hamvention might fit the bill better. Guess one has to wait and see what happens.0
Looks like Flex 6400/6600 are on there way to europe... Got confirmation from PA distributor that my 6400 will arrive next monday july 16!
All ready in the shack.0
Have you received it?0
Received it on July 18!1
Have fun with it, waiting is soon over I guess0
