Just bought the 6400m

I just want to thank Tim at Flex for helping me a few years ago when my house burnt to the ground, he sent me a box to ship my flex 5000a to be fixed and did it for free because he heard about my disaster , so I'm here to finally buy a new Flex and I did the 6400m , I am a customer for LIFE. Thanks Tim

    Tim, Mike, and the whole Flex team are like family to me. I see it all the time that their support is top notch.

    Hearing what Tim and Flex did for you is a “feel good” story of how they stepped up to help make your day a little brighter after a tragedy. Hopefully no one was hurt in the fire.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks David , I was in the market for a new radio , my 5000a is great but wanted something new , I looked around but I know flex stands behind their products and their customers, so , to me , it was a no brainer .
    no body was hurt , I lost everything, but saved my cat and of course my flex was saved by Tim at Flex.

    I thought it took FOREVER when I was waiting for mine but... it only seemed like it.

    Glad the family and cat made it through unscathed. My cat is our baby!

    Remember, cats have slaves!

    You will love the 6400m. I do love my 6600m. One cool feature is Smart Control mode where you have SmartSDR running on the PC with big panadapter and control radio with front panel buttons & knobs. You will not be disappointed!

    Funny I joined the Flex family based on a fire as well. Lightning hit and the garage burnt, took out my radio in the process. House, dog, cat, kids, cars were all safe though. I feel for you with the whole house and everything going! very glad to hear everyone, pets included were safe.
