Zimbabwe Turf File

I've just bought a second FlexRadio transceiver. This one is a 6300 which will supplement my 6700 except that I intend to operate it from Zimbabwe as Z21NRT. I think it may well be the first such rig in Zimbabwe! Do I need a new TURF file or should I just carry on using the one that came with it from the UK? If I need a new one, what do I need to do? Just open a ticket? David G4NRT / Z21NRT

    Hello David,
    Just follow local regulations in relation to frequencies on which amateurs in Zimbabwe are permitted to operate. Compare them with these which apply to UK operators. If there are significant differences, contact Flex and request a TURF file . There may be a TURF file valid for several countries, including Zimbabwe, or for a region, like region 06 ( Europe) in my case. Please note that you need to provide your radio's serial number as TURF files contain a unique equipment serial number. To find the serial number open SSDR , select SETTINGS then select RADIO SETUP and you will see the serial number. If there are significant frequency differences  for UK and Zimbabwe you may need to delete new TURF files after returning to UK.

    Good luck with your Zimbabwe expedition and see you on (lower ) bands !

    Thanks Tom. The rig will be staying in Zimbabwe. We have our second home there. I've been using an IC-7100 until now but I've hit a 65' mast and tri-bander down there now (they need to be erected!) so.with the Flex il have a good station to play with when I'm there! I'll check my Zimbabwe license and probably get a new TURF file to make sure I'm 100% compliant. David
