6700 limited edition


I am looking at purchasing a used 6700 limited edition. I have no serial number or other information regarding the radio. My understanding is that these are an early version of the 6700, and my question is will these radios operate with the latest version of SmartSDR? if a license is required to operate the new version what is the cost of that? also finally are there any hardware limitations on this unit compared to the current offering?

thank you

    Yes, it will run the current version of SW and all versions in between. I use a LE 6500 as an alpha tester.

    If it has any version 3 SW installed it can be upgraded to the latest release of V3 at no cost.

    If it has V2 installed it can be upgraded to the latest release of V2 at no cost.

    The license upgrade from V1 or V2 software to V3 is ( I believe ) $200.

    I know of no hardware/operational limitations of the LE vs. current hardware.
