I'm selling my Flex-6700. I placed an ad on QTH.com, but also giving the community a heads up. Asking $6000. Offers welcome. 

I'm not getting out of the flex game. I just temporarily need to downsize. Hopefully I should get a new radio later on this year or early next year.

Updates!!!

So, I have been silent about it for a while but the reason I wanted to sell my radio is that I was facing a change in employment and I wasn't sure if I would be in a good financial position. SO I needed to keep cash on hand to pay bills and such.

HOWEVER- I have found a new job, that I start soon. So I don't need to sell my radio anymore! I am really excited about the new job, but I am really glad that I can keep my radio. 

It was a really tough decision and the Flex folks have been absolutely amazing with this platform - I didn't want anyone to think that I was dropping Flex because I hated it. Quite the opposite! But now I have a great new job and I can keep my radio so it's a win-win!!!

Andrew,

Hah!! Funny, I would not get hired. It is much more cost effictive to get someone to service my cars. Rather spend that time with my wife. Guess I am not an engineer. ;>)

Being over qualified is a crock...  What it is, is that hiring managers do not like to hire someone smarter then them. 
I think in some cases it falls under age discrimination, which is the real issue. However I am not old enough to qualify under age discrimination laws. That said, I don't want to work anywhere where I am not welcomed. I won't be a good fit there.  But it's a candidate's market, so no worries.

Gerald - I agree with you and I have a local independent I trust. But I can and I have. BTW for me it is more of an issue of trust. I have had car dealerships ruin my car and then pretend like nothing happened. The local dealership I bought my minivan from stripped one of my lug nuts and just put on another non-locking nut that was rounded. I made them buy a new set of 4 when I went home and found out. I was so mad.

Gerald,
I agree that it’s often not cost effective for you and me at this point of our lives. The younger ones have more time than money.
But it can be fun. So there are things I spend time on as it’s more satisfying .
There are retired hams who do service and repair of all sorts of stuff.
I only build things I can’t or don’t want to buy these days. In many cases a simple cheap fix or build is better than a $$$ replacement or purchase.
