6400 vs 6600
Good Evening Flexradio community,
I have been toying around with the idea of purchasing a Flex 6000 series radio. I know the basic differences between the 6400 and 6600. Such as 2 slice receivers versus 4 slice receivers. I also know that the 6400 has one SCU vs two for the 6600. Plus diversity receive if I have 2 receive antennas. And I have also read that the filtering is different between the two radios. Though I don't understand what that means because I would think the filtering would be controlled via SmartSDR and would be the same for all of the radios.
I do like to operate contests. I do have 2 receive antennas. One is the HY-Z 3 element and a 250' beverage. I have a Ram 34 XL RX Preamp System. And with this I have both Receive Antennas connected and can automatically switch between one or the other. Plus with N1MM as far as I know you can only have 2 VFO's operating at the same time anyway. I hate to admit it, but am just unsure which would serve me better. Both now and the future also. I am not interested in operating SO2R, so that is of no concern to me.
I would like to hear users opinions on this. Thanks! Mark Griffin, KB3Z
