What's painful is they still can't give you an exact date. Judas Priest!

Maybe Flex should take bids for a place in the first one hundred shipment slots :-)  They might pick up enough extra cash to buy donuts for the staff and alpha testers.

We don't have time to eat them.  And our "fuel" of choice is Red Bull and Cheetoes. ;-)

Hey Tim, the 6400 does it just need a Monitor to use the radio

The "Non-M" Flex models (6400 & 6600) require a complete PC along with the SmartSDR software.  This is the same requirement as for prior models.

Not really, you can turn your computer off and use an ipad, iphone. laptop, remote. You simply need a use interface.

don't forget the Maestro. running my 6600 via Maestro right now. No PC needed unless you are running third party software such as logging or digital software.

Actually, thinking about this for, like ten seconds or so, this might be something fun for us Flexers and a way for Flex to pick up additional revenue.  One of our talented Flexers (ahem, Mark WS7M) could write a web based program that takes bids and assigns places in the First Hundred.  If someone gets bumped out, they can get back in by adding to their bid amount.

I am jealous Wayne.  Like WU5E said the agony of waiting for it and  the brown truck. Congrats my friend.  Ready to hear it on the air.

Ordered 6600 on 5/22. Can barely contain myself! Checking for that invoice and shipping news.

Me too! Talked to Matt he told me they are processing in batches. And I "might" be invoiced sometime next week. (Soon) But, given Gary ordered on 5/23, it would appear orders are not necessarily being processed in order of date ordered. Maybe alphabetically instead?

Did Matt say anything about actual shipment beginning next week?  Just curious.

I stand corrected! Oh, I got an email from FRS earlier, not an invoice, but an invite to register for the Dayton/Xenia Hamvention Banquet!
Lucky me. Not quite what I was hoping for! Oh well, live and learn!

I received my tracking number this afternoon for a Flex 6600.  It has left the building in Austin, TX.  I know I am not the only one...have heard CRICKETS here:)

Not going to worry over a couple of days, especially given there are several hardware lines being processed. Not planning on being far from home the next few weeks!

They are obviously backed up :)

I called them yesterday right after getting my invoice and got a message. I left my contact info for them to call me back, but have not heard from them.

Well, just got a call back from Matt. Invoice email sent out today. I checked, not there. Maybe my provider's spam filter ate it? Anyway, paid in full! Looks to be a couple more weeks till shipping! But, at least things are figured out now!

You guys are killing me!  My 6600M was ordered a month later, on 6/23.  At this pace I may not see mine until Easter.

I ordered mine (6600m) on 6/7 no invoice yet. I think you will see the radio by the 3rd week in February. Easter by the way is on April fools day. Take that for what's it's worth.

Thanks for the encouragement, but I'm running low on optimism. At least we're starting to see some progress. I'm sure Gerald is just as anxious as we are to get these moved over to the other side of the ledger sheet.

Although they are shipping starting next week it sounds like my 5/22 order is a couple weeks from shipping according to Matt.

That's weird, from the posts I have read, it sounded like they are doing a mass shipping of them or able to ship quickly once they start.

That depends on whether or not you order any extras with your radio when invoiced, I think.
Having to add a GPSDO for instance, to a bunch of radios could slow things down some, since it is customizing an order. But, maybe not too much.

I ordered (6600) on 5/22 and received my invoice yesterday. I did not choose any options on it. It should be quick to process.

I know for sure that the day I take the time to get the mobile rig set up in the house, the 6600 will ship. Should we tempt fate?
