6300 "bundle" - Does the ATU come installed?

I ordered a 6300 with the ATU and handles. Do the accessories come installed or "in the box"?

Thanks,
Jim N7CXI

    Jim, Mine came separately due to delivery problems over the pond to Germany. I assembled the ATU and the handlebars one week after getting the 6300. It is not a problem, you can't go wrong with the FRS instruction manual. It took me abt. 15 min, and the job was done. Have fun with your 6300. I enjoy it a lot. VY 73 Thomas DK1EY www.dk1ey.de

    Thanks. I was just curious... I got an email saying the radio has shipped, so it's on my mind.

    I don't know how you even think straight to type on this forum right now!  I was so excited after I got "the call" last August from Matt at FRS that I could hardly sleep!  Then there was a delay due to storms!  It was worse than being a kid waiting for Christmas because I already KNEW what I was getting!

    Well - now I wouldn't want to be accused of thinking straight... ;-)

    We just downsized into this QTH a couple of weeks ago, so boxes are stacked high with walkways between stacks. I mention this because I sold my 5000A and most of the rest of my station before the move, and promised myself new gear at the new QTH. The shack is smaller than at the previous QTH, but very nice. The 30A 240V circuit got installed last Friday for the amp, and the 6300 will be the first new piece of gear to arrive. Too bad I don't have a single antenna up yet to radiate all that brand-new RF... Fortunately for me, the weather is supposed to cool off for a few days toward the end of the week - enough time to get some temporary antennas up for the weekend, as long as nothing inconvenient happens with work.

    Back to the 6300, at the old QTH I ran the 5000A from a dedicated CPU, which made for redundant boxes, displays, keyboards etc. I'm wondering if I'll be able to get away with using my main work machine for both work and the 6300... It's a 6-core AMD running at 3.8 gHz, 16GB of fast RAM etc. I haven't as yet measured it for DPC latency. I still have the i7 desktop I was using with the 5K in the wings if that doesn't work out. It worked fine with PowerSDR.

    It must be tired out, I'm starting to type in little bursts... ;-)

    73,

    Jim , no problem with the 6-core AMD.  You can use it for the FLEX and Your work at the same time if You have two displays on it. I use a 4-core INTEL hp-pavilion.  I use it for my FLEX on one screen and all the other programs including CAD , e-mail , Internet ans remote control of my [email protected] measurment equipment on the other screen. I'am already thinking over a 3 display video card.

    The ATU should be installed.  The handles will not.  It only takes a few minutes to install the handles.
