I recently noticed some Flex doc’s that referred to the V/U module in my 5000a as having 132-165 mhz rx range. PSDR only seems to give me access to 144-148. Has anyone been able to receive the out of band freq’s? If so, how? On another note, I am really close to making the move on a 6500. I really enjoy my 5000 and it very much fits my operating needs but I wonder if it’s time to make the move to stay current? Has anyone else made this same transition? If so what are your thoughts and what might I see for a difference? My initial thought is to keep the 5K for a while but I know that might be silly.. dunno? Thanks! Mike W1BFA in Maine

The FLEX-5000 V/U module only covered 144-146 MHz.  The 135-165 MHz range is for RX on the FLEX-6700 and transverter TX.
