    George, after you get it all setup and dialed in, you should post a SKED so other Flexers can get the WF6.6KISA (Worked First 6600 in South America) award.

    Congrats on this great distinction George. Nicely crated too. Reminds me of the extra heavy wood crating on an old Gonset GSB101 amplifier (4 811A's, heavy) I purchased from a ham Yellow Freight from CT many moons ago. Shipping wood is not cheap! Enjoy that new 6600, first in Country, very cool...
