Attention to details

Hi Tim,
I was on 40M this morning with a few guys using the Flex 6500. We were talking about the 6500 to the 6600. It was mentioned that it is well understood about the things done on the 6600 to make it very price competitive. Comparing the two, the 6500 is truly a beautiful radio and has a look of refinement. The most noted is the professional  XLR input. gives a sense of detail. It was noted that they would have hoped the XLR could have been part of the 6600.

Because the 6500 is so well made and it is a no compromise radio, they feel that selling them if they wanted would still bring a good return, and that many are now looking for a 6500 to buy.

For me? I wish the XLR could have stayed, it sort of sets radios apart, you know, details.

I can understand that. Even though only one out of three hundred QSOs I make are on SSB, I run a studio-grade Astatic mic on a boom that takes me back to the days when I was sitting in front of a Collins or Gates board at the radio stations I worked for in my younger days. The XLR plug just seems more professional.
