I will be receiving the 6400M today. And I plan to video some of the initial stages of setting up the transceiver. The video will not be about opening the box. I have about 40K subscribers on YouTube and it should draw an audience. I have been active/licensed since 1964 but this type of transceiver is an enigma. I sold some Elecraft gear in order to make the purchase. My question is: What would be the most helpful for me to show in the video during the initial stages of setting up the transceiver? That may be a poorly worded question. I am looking forward to receiving the transceiver but have trepidation as might be expected. My very close friend A71AM is going to be helping me. Thank you and 73, Jim Heath W6LG

    Jim, good morning and thanks for your Youtube posts. I enjoy your level-headed approach to the productions that you do. Having no experience on the video production side, I recommend looking at some other videos that cover setting up the 6000 series radios such as Put the FLEX-6500 On The Air - YouTube . Though not the same as your 6400M, the format might be helpful to you.

    73, Jeff KT5N

    Thanks for the compliment. Honestly, I don't watch other's videos because I don't want to copy what they do. Right now I am making a conversion cable from my standard mic, an old Astatic 10da (not the same as a D104) to the small stereo plug. I am listening to EU guys in the contest well over S9 at sunrise. Thanks Jeff, nice to hear from you. Fedex is due before lunch. 73, Jim
