Just got my new Flex-6700 a couple of weeks ago. I hooked up my 2 meter beam the other day and tonight I talked to a friend of mine on 2 meter SSB with no amp. He is 76 miles away! Looking forward to the new Downeast Microwave amp to come out. 76 miles with 5 mW of power! I'd like to see how far I can work when we have a good tropo opening with 5 mW of power with my large 2 meter beam.
