Was not aware of the Heatsink problem or the RF Pre amp enhancement. How are users made aware of such issues ?

If your radio was one of the ones affected, you were sent an email from FlexRadio to the email address associated with your order informing you of the issue and how to sign up for receiving the PEN Update.

I purchased my radio from Radioworld in Canada. Should I send a request to the PEN email address or contact Radioworld directly. I received my 6400 in early March so I assume it requires the modification.
 ..Thanks, Dan

I have received the mod for the heatsink a while back and took practically no time to install it. I took pictures while performing this mod and finally got time to post to my website, which by the way took longer. If you feel you need some extra photos in addition to the excellent video by flex, check this out: https://w6aer.com/flexradio-heatsink-upgrade-inside-tour/ I really hopes this helps somebody out and thank you once again FlexRadio for addressing this so quickly and professionally. Nicely done!
