Since taking delivery of my FLEX 6400m my Flex Control has been sitting on my desk unused. I've adjusted well not using the control but I must admit I do miss it. So, is there any reason I should hold onto the Flex Control? From what I been told it is not compatible with my 6400m.
My Maestro is due to get new opto encoder, been holding back until the KH1 adventure was over... and now I see the Flex Control is now not in stock over here! Anyone willing to sell their Flex control I would be more than happy to buy it :D Scratches is no problem as long as it works. Anyone?
If you intend to only operate from the front panel, then a Flex Control is unnecessary, but if you prefer a larger screen and the options that SSDR provide, an FC is extremely useful. I actually have two of them; the second one being controlled by DDUTIL, as I'm usually running SSDR on my 27" monitor with my primary radio. My Maestro is relegated to being the control for my 2nd Flex In normal use, One of the FC's is programmed to primarily serve as a volume control while the 2nd tunes the radio, in finer steps than are available through SSDR. When DXing, they become individual tuning knobs for both slices, but with instant availabilty of volume control for the active slice and CWS speed without using the mouse. There's no single answer to you question. It entirely depends on your operating style.
