Just received my Flex 6600M on Friday morning, got it set up for the ARRL DX CW contest in a short time, and was off and running.  Took awhile to get used to a radio with knobs again after my 6500!  RX at 100 Hz cut through the QRM, made virtually every contact I wanted to.  Got my best score in years too!

Yes excellent filtering Paul, should also make note of the importance of using APF too. Really enhances the received CW signal tone to a Sharp note.

I know you already know this Paul having owned the 6500 this is for the growing number of new Flex owners out there.
Almost forgot APF is Auto Peak Filter.

Awesome Paul!

I spent some time this weekend watching the contest and playing a little.  20m was crazy busy.
