I got my notice last week, and my 6700 arrived in Austin today, October 13, 2014.  My purchase date was 5/18/12.

Mine was Purchased at Dayton 2012
Got the recall on 10/03/14
Shipped back 10/06/14
UPS says it will be back at my QTH 10/14/14

Impressive turn around time  (albeit i paid for 2 Day Air Return because i need to set it up for a contest shootout with a IC-7800, K3, FTDX5000 and assorted other Legacy radios...

It's not a recall.  It's a Product Enhancement.    I already have gotten mine back.

Don't you just love these marketing terms?

What is the 'enhancement'? When one buys from a retailer, does FRS get contact details or do we need to register somewhere?

Tnx.

For eligible FLEX-6700 customers, the distributor from whom you purchased your radio is handling the notification for the PEN modification.

The Enhancement applies ONLY to 6700. It is an upgrade to power supply in order handle heavier. Current due to more sophisticated code in the FPGA

If u own a 6700, your dealer or Flex will contact you
