I Just thought I would comment on field day weekend. Worked FD from my back porch at home. my setup included a K2 run on batteries and a end fed dipole at 15 feet. Output power was 4 watts.  My main rig is a Flex 6500. After using the Flex it sure has made testing  and dx chasing easy. What I really want to say is, I had to get used to moving the dial up and down the bands to make a contact (search and pounce). Took a while to get used to but all came back fine.

 Apples to Oranges.. Flex(sdr) is the way to go......

Used the FLEX 6300 here (WWA) running 1D. Was amazing to watch all that screen activity on 40M late last night.
