My package has arrived today....

Order May 22th 2017
Total payed January 16th 2018
Arrived Miami February 13th 2018
Arrived Caracas, Venezuela February 22th 2018

Of course not in traditional box ....my courier took preventive actions to avoid damage......of course after I answered .... “ oh yes it’s another Radio.... that one costs 4K “. Hahahahahaha

Is this one first Flexradio 6600 at South America ? I’m sure it’s first one at Venezuela

Cheers

George, after you get it all setup and dialed in, you should post a SKED so other Flexers can get the WF6.6KISA (Worked First 6600 in South America) award.

Congrats on this great distinction George.
Nicely crated too.
Reminds me of the extra heavy wood crating on an old Gonset GSB101 amplifier (4 811A's, heavy) I purchased from a ham Yellow Freight from CT many moons ago.
Shipping wood is not cheap!
Enjoy that new 6600, first in Country, very cool...
