It's been about 2 months since they stopped shipping, so I was just wondering,  I ordered mine in March, and I know there are many others who ordered before me. It would be helpful to have another update and a little more communication about this delay.  Thanks.

First sample filters arrived at FlexRadio today for stress testing.  If all goes well with that we will upgrade all existing units at customer locations and then restart new shipments.  Customers who already have the units are on the air every day.

> and perhaps more importantly, because I don't find it's earth-shattering when I can't make a contact.

Pat - point made and congratulations on your wonderful achievements. 

I'm sure you must realize that, like it or not, people will continue to decide when they use their amplifiers (and buy vehicles they enjoy), just as they always have.           

Anyone for getting back to the thread subject?

You don't need 1500 watts to bust through a pileup.

Do you recall K1N Navassa Island? It was #1 most wanted at the time and had the biggest pileups I've ever seen. I got them on 6 bands running 300 watts to my Hustler vertical while "big guns" were filling the air with enough juice to light up Denver. If you check their log on Clublog you'll see me in there.

Or how about TI9/3Z9DX the Cocos Island Dxpedition that almost no one could work due to huge mountain barriers on the island. I got them on 3 bands.

More recently I got VP6D on 7 bands including 160 with less power. Their pileups were impressive as well and probably just as filled with high power ops and large antenna arrays .

I have many more examples including Clipperton Island where my little configuration got past pileups. So don't tell me 1500 watts is needed for pileups. That just doesn't  hold water.

I'm not telling people how to operate but I am pointing out that running 1500 all the time when it is not necessary is illegal according to FCC 97.313

I'm also pointing out how illogical it is to need 1500 watts if you have a gigantic antenna halfway to the Moon. If the antenna system is so good then you should only need a fraction of 1500 otherwise it sounds like your antenna is not very good after all.

Pat, I am surprised you did not start a new thread, if you wanted to continue. This was about PGXL deliveries.
