I am looking to purchase the 6700. I currently use a WinRadio G313 for BCB DXing. I'd like to replace it when I get the flex. What is the Flex 6700 AM sensitivity in the freq range below 1.6 MHz @ 3KHz BW? Thanx! Jim Shaw, AL7BA

The FLEX-6000 series has the same sensitivity on MW as it does on the higher bands. With the preamp off, this is a -122 dBm MDS in 500 Hz. You can do the math to convert that to other bandwidths. You can also use the 20 dB preamp on MW if you have a low gain antenna. I have not measured the preamp on MW, but it will probably reducte the noise figure down there by as much as 15 db. With something like a Pixel loop, you will get great MW reception without the preamp.
