I have the 6500.
I have noticed quite a few signals show on the panadpter a wide spreading out signal...meaning if I let's say have 2.9 as my rcv bandwidth I see a very large spreading of the signal at the bottom (maybe 2 KC or more than the bandwidth image.
Also on the waterfall I see horizontal spikes going out each side of the signal. Reducing Pre-Amp or using ATTN does not change the display (Anytime??).
Is this a problem with the Flex design?? OR are these signals really that bad?
It seems only with very strong signals...but I have seen many +10-20 signals look OK.
Is the front end of this radio getting overloaded or are there that many bad TX's out there??
