Not knowing the internals of the Flex 6700, I was just wondering if it would help protect the front end from over load and damage of the 6700 from close by Hi power stations during field day or a next door neighbor Ham running full legal power by installing a "AS-RFFEP RX Front End Protector" in the "RX Loop".

I know this would help extremely if it's installed in front of the RX only Jack and the RX only Antenna if I had one.

I have it connected now in the "RX A loop" and I see about 1S unit of signal loss which isn't bad if it's helps protect the Radio.

All FLEX-6000s incorporate an overload protection mechanism that will switch the SCU out of the RF signal path if the input level approaches the point of damaging the ADC.
