Apparently, I did :)

I guess pictures are in order !

Pictures would be excellent for the options that are physical. It's hard to make a judgement call on these without being able to see what you're purchasing.

I too would like to see the rack kit before I BUY.

Will there be rack ears and a rack handle kit like the prior radios?

Will you be able to use both at the same time like the 63/65/6700?

How many rack spaces (?U) will the 6400 take with the rack mounts?

I just measured my 6400 (not int a rack) and it will take up 4U even though the rack mount brackets are about an inch shorter. The bottom of the enclosure has that section that drops down and make the entire height 4U.

Thanks ! I'm using an 8U cabinet, and was wondering if I'd have enough space for the other items. 4U will leave me enough room. Good news.

I did find this picture of the 6600 with a rack mount. I assume it would look the same.
