I just finished reading the QST review of the 6000 series - most interesting.
I noticed in one of the photos of the 6700 that the LED display was ARRL-6700.  Is this possible?
It would be really cool to have it read K3GC - 6700, etc.

You can customize the front panel on the 6500 and 6700 in the Radio Setup pane.

Gene,

Elmer sent a nice picture, but the key is to type your call in the "Nickname" box.

Thanks, but color me stupid.  I set mysetup pane exactly like yours (except for the call :)) and it had no effect whatever on the front panel of the radio - it still reads FLEX-6700.  I rebooted radio and PC.  Am I missing something obvious?

Did you click the "Nickname" button next to what you typed?

Are you connected to the radio?

Ahhhh, a simple click - on such trivial things the world revolves :).
Thanks, I think I will buy a new video card now.
