FLEX Console (a Maestro without the screen)
After using my FLEX 6500 for a few years, I knew I didn't need a radio with knobs but I kind of liked the idea anyway and I ordered my 6600M. I'm very pleased with the radio, however, I find that I am using Smart SDR 90% of the time. (Other users have confessed this to be the case as well) I really don't need the Maestro screen. What I envision is something resembling half a Maestro or less. It would basically consist of the top row of buttons and the two tunning knobs and maybe the Mic/Speed/power button. This would be a unit that would fit nicely under a monitor maybe the length of a keyboard and four to six inches high. It could have a slightly sloping front panel. Basically, it would have most of the features of the Maestro and maybe include a couple of handy USB Ports in the back. It might be half the cost of the Mastro maybe as much or more with the right features. I think contesters would be popular with contesters and quite a nice package for DX Expeditions. I'm guessing others will have some features they would like to see in the SmartConsole. Maybe the artist among us can come with some design concepts.
